Jury members who had stopped showing up to court because they had not received their allowances for 13 months have returned to work after the strike was called off.
After making a partial settlement with their underpaid allowances last week, they returned to court this week.
On April 18, persons who were seconded by their respective institutions to serve as jurors to assist the Judicial Service of Ghana resolve high-profile cases at the High Court abandoned their duties over 13 months of unpaid allowances.
They complained that, since March 2022, their allowances have been outstanding, making it impossible for them to commute to and from the court.
On Tuesday, April 25, the jurors are back in court serving their duties in the various murder cases.
EIB Network’s Legal Affairs Correspondent, Murtala Inusah, who is in court, reports that the jurors have so far been paid about four months of their allowances.
