Security of judicial officers in Namibia is worrisome - Kooper


The security of judicial officers in Namibia is worrisome, as they are often attacked by family members of accused persons.

Members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs, who are gathered at Swakopmund for a stakeholder consultation, are now calling for improved protection of judicial officers.

The meeting is a follow-up to last year's workshop at Tsumeb, where challenges in the legal sector were identified.
