Former Solicitor General Cllr. Betty Lamin-Blamo says making decisions during jury trials is very important in any case.
Cllr. Lamin-Blamo said being a juror you realize that your role has put you in a position to decide against the rich and poor.
Cllr. Blamo noted that people are often accused and lives are lost based on the decision made during trial, as she urged prospective jurors to dispense justice without fear and to be independent. The Country former Solicitor General made the statement Monday when the Central Office of Jury Management gathered over 200 Prospective Jurors for orientation at the Temple of Justice.
The prospective jurors’ gathering comes at the time when Circuit Courts are about to open for the November Term of Court, consistent with Chapter 3, Section 3.8 of the Judiciary Law of Liberia.
