‘Justice in SI needs improvement’
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper – 14 February 2020
“ALL Solomon Islanders should have equal access to justice no matter their gender, age, disability or remoteness of their village.
“This was highlighted by the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Justice and Legal Affairs, Paul Mae during a final review of the justice sector’s draft Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Strategy, Wednesday.
“Improving access to justice for all Solomon Islanders is a crucial initiative and the ministry is looking forward to working closely with the wider justice sector to achieve it, Dr Mae said.
“The justice sector has an important role to play in contributing to the national effort to improve gender equality and social inclusion, especially by making sure all Solomon Islanders are equal when it comes to accessing justice,” he said.
“At the heart of these efforts is our belief in fairness. After All making sure there is fairness in our society is a fundamental purpose and function of the justice system,” he added.
“Dr Mae added that he hoped that in his time as PS the strategy would lead to some real and practical changes.”
