It was hoped that the training of young lawyers and their mobilisation to serve as magistrates would make it possible to temper the administration of justice with high grade professionalism.

This however would be impossible if magistrates are not fully remunerated and if they are subjected to any direction and control by any authority other than the Constitution, the statutes and judicial precedence.

Our reporters have noted the attitude of certain young magistrates after it was known that a certain magistrate was under arrest without clear information whether it was due to an order given during the course of a trial or for a matter outside of his professional duties. The suspense still remains.

It is absolutely essential for the authorities to note that if any magistrate or judge is prosecuted or persecuted for an order made in court, staff motivation in the judiciary would sink to a low level and the proper administration of justice would be the casualty.
