Construction of Banz court house starts


CONSTRUCTION work on a K2.5 million court house for Banz town in Jiwaka’s North Waghi has started, North Waghi MP Dr Fabian Pok says.
“About two hectares were fenced,” he said on Friday.
“We now have the technical team from the National Court in Waigani with chief magistrate Mark Pupaka, Mt Hagen residence judge Justice Peter Toliken, our provincial magistrate Josephine Kilage and our police personnel from Banz inspecting the area.
“This facility, when completed, will cater for both the district and national courts.
“This will be a dream come true for people in Jimi and North Waghi.
“It will also help reduce the workload of the Minj District Court.
“Our people need judiciary services right at their doorstep.”
The technical staff from the National Court who accompanied Pok for the site inspection used drone technology.
Pok also said Banz police would be empowered with two police vehicles to be delivered shortly, and the police station would undergo refurbishment, as well as have a new water pump, new chairs and new computers.
