ALL complaints against justices of the peace and commissioners for oaths must be made to the Department of Justice says acting permanent secretary for Justice Mohammed Saneem.
Speaking at a workshop for JPs in Labasa yesterday, Mr Saneem reminded all present they should maintain an available copy of the complaints form for members of the public.
Mr Saneem said the annual workshop was conducted for commissioners for oaths and JPs.
"The workshop covers the scope of work that they undertake and we are training them on issues they come across in their daily work," Mr Saneem said.
"The objective of the workshop is to help our officers improve their service delivery.
"We are calling to members of the public to come forward with their complaints if they have any against our JPs and commissioner for oaths."
Mr Saneem said all complaints must be made on a complete JP complaint form.
"The forms are available from the Ministry of Justice website or office and it must include the full name and contact details of the complainant.
"Identify the JP concerned, preferable by name or JP registration number including the provision of specific details of the nature of the complaint made.
"The forms must be lodged within six months of the conduct being complained about unless the Department of Justice determines that an exception circumstance exists.
