New Abirem Gets a Circuit Court


                       A Circuit Court has been inaugurated in New Abirem, in the Birem North Constituency in the Eastern
                      Region of Ghana. The establishment of the Court means that the people of New Abirem will no longer
                      travel and incur additional costs accessing justice in Oda, Mpraeso, Asamankese and Swedru, as was
                      the case, due to the limited jurisdiction of the existing District Court.

                         giving monies to Court Registrars to prepare court documents for them, as they are not Lawyers and
                         therefore not qualified to do so.
