The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, has constituted seven special panels to expedite hearing of all pending appeals.

Justice Dongban-Mensem

Justice Dongban-Mensem who announced the setting up of the panels during the maiden edition of her conference with Presiding Justices of the 20 Divisions of the Court of Appeal, said she was disturbed about backlog of appeals that are pending for adjudication.

She disclosed that the special panels will conduct two hearing sessions daily and work for three days to dispose of over 100 pending motions.

The President of the Court of Appeal said the move became necessary, in view of lingering appeals clustering the Court owing to what she described as the unwillingness of some litigants that go into deep slumber without filing complete processes.

She maintained that since the Presiding Justices are heads of their various Divisions, they should take charge and ensure quick determination of the backlog of appeals within their domain.
