This village court officials came from all over Western Highlands Province.

They said that out of an eleven-member village court, only seven of them are receiving allowances.

A Village Court is made up of at least 11 officials, and they include the village court magistrate, a clerk, a peace mediator and others.

There are 1600 village courts in PNG. Within, there are 5000 court officials.

Most of them are not highly educated, but they were given the jobs because of their leadership personality.

They maintain law and order at the village level.

The village court officials said they want an equal treatment from the government.

They said the government must fix this before the 2017 National elections.
