Morobe communities will have access to improved and additional legal services, following the opening of new provincial law and justice offices and a bigger and better family and sexual violence unit in Lae, funded by the Australian Government.

The two facilities were opened by the Honourable Governor of Morobe, Mr Kasiga Kelly Naru and Minister-Counsellor, Robert Brink, of the Australian High Commission.
 
“The opening of these two offices will bring great improvement in legal services for Morobe communities,” said Mr Brink.
 
“The law and justice office will play a large role in progressing safety and security from villages to towns, working in cooperation with all districts, provincial and national agencies.
 
The creation of this office and its specialist responsibility for village court and land mediations will mean significantly improved access to justice and delivery of justice.”
 
The new unit is expected to handle over 1,100 cases every year. A total of K830,000 was spent on building including a vehicle.
