The Ghana Justice System is not that Bad- Lawyer Kwame Gyan

A legal luminary and teacher of law for the past 27years at the school of law Legon, Mr.  Kwame Gyan, has given the Ghana legal justice system a vote of confidence at a time when confidence in the the state justice system appear to be at an all time low.  

Theorist have attributed the recent spate of mob justice to such lack of confidence in official justice institutions such as the courts and the police.  

But speaking to Harry Larson of Ahotor 92.3fm on Thursday 1 June 2017, two days after Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama was murdered by the mob of Denkyira Oboasi, who mistook him to be a thief,  lawyer Gyan opined  that Ghana’s legal system is far superior to many others in the sub region of Africa.

Though Mr Gyan  Admits there is room for improvement , he adds that should not make anybody discount the improvement Ghana has made.

He argues further that there are many magistrate courts today than before and many lawyers have been trained than previously. And the justice for all program have been an enhancement of Ghana’s  justice system.

Lawyer Gyan points out that rather than using recent mob justice as an excuse to discount our legal system, it  must be noted that it did not start today. In his opinion the ‘so called revolution days of Ghana’ instilled the culture of indiscipline into the society and made it possible for the young to disrespect the old.
