No charge, Justice Gates tells JP

Mere Naleba
Friday, February 14, 2014

NEWLY appointed justices of the peace (JPs) were reminded there was no charge for their services.

In confirming the appointments of about 50 JPs, Chief Justice Anthony Gates said the public should raise complaints about JPs who charge a fee for their services.

Justice Gates said this could lead to an inquiry and if an offending JP is found guilty, it could warrant the cancellation of his or her licence.

"That would be an embarrassment, and none of you wishes to have that brought upon you," he said.

"So, no charging please and no back door charging.

"Besides the duties that I have mentioned, you will also be asked to witness signatures and to have statutory declarations signed in front of you.

"You will also find bailiffs or police officers coming to you for affidavits of service to be sworn before you".
