National Court Judge on Outstanding Bench Warrants

National Court Judge, Panuel Mogish says there are about 600 unattended bench warrants in Papua New Guinea which are unattended by police.

This is because of limited resources and funding to cater for Police officers’ transportation and housing to execute bench warrants in rural areas in the country.

The National Court Judge urged Provincial Authorities to work in partnership with the Law and Justice Sector to support police officers to serve outstanding bench warrants.

Justice Mogish made this statement while officiating at a recent event at Kwikila station in Central Province.

He said there are a total of 600 outstanding Bench Warrants. Central Province has 87 however, because of community involvement with police numbers has gone down to 23.

Mogish also encouraged prosecutors to observe trial proceedings to have a fair idea on how to tender evidences in court.
