Source: citifmonline.com - State Attorneys who begun a nationwide strike on Tuesday say they will only resume work if government shows clear commitment in addressing their concerns.
The state attorneys on Monday laid down their tools to demand an increment and a harmonization of their salaries and benefits to that of circuit court judges as stated in the Legal Services Act 1993.
They also complain of lack of logistics to enhance their work. Speaking to Citi News after meeting the Finance Minister, President of the Association of State Attorneys, Francisca Tete-Mensah said they are prepared to fight for what is due them.
“The strike continues. We were at the meeting and for the first time, they promised that they will give us what we want, so the Finance Ministry is going to put the harmonization on paper and when they are ready, they will call us but the strike continues.”
“It has taken us a long time to get to where we are now and they are not ready to call us when there is nothing on the table. We are embarking a on legal strike. We have followed every procedure to make it legal,” she added.
Meanwhile, activities in most of the country’s courts have grinded to a halt.
When Citi News visited some of the courts in the country, most of them had little or no activity.
