“ Your duty is to respect the principle of human rights and freedom of expression the government of Rwanda committed to respect,” he said.
Premier Murekezi advised them that vigilance and justice must be core values to their job.
“ This will define you as justice administrators that do not turn innocent people into criminals and have criminals declared innocent; be honest and ensure that those that lose court cases are satisfied with the rulings and be people of outstanding character,” he advised.
“ A good judge especially from RDF known for high discipline must be exemplary. You must work hard to avoid backlogs. You must know that justice delayed is justice denied,” he added.
