“Basic Rights and Fundamentals of Justice” Awareness – SogeriPNGCJE
A third awareness program on “Basic Rights and Fundamentals of Justice” was conducted by the Papua New Guinea Centre for Judicial Excellence at the Bisiatabu village up in the Sogeri mountains in Central Province on 5 August 2021.
The program was presented as a discussion with PNGCJE Finance Officer Ms. Stella Tadies moderating the session and asking questions to PNGCJE Executive Director Dr. John Carey and Deputy Executive Director Mr. Sam Kaipu who were the main speakers.
They explained the different types of Constitutional Rights that people have and the process to go about seeking justice if and when their rights are breached.
Over 50 people attended the program with most being school children from the Bisiatabu Primary School who rushed in to attend the program. The students were so eager to learn about their rights and the basics of accessing justice through the courts.
The awareness was part of a project funded by the Pacific Judicial Strengthening Initiative (PJSI) which will see awareness programs carried out in six different communities within NCD and the Central Province.
