MOJ To Establish Register Of Unresolved Crimes

May 1, 2014

The Attorney-General and Honourable Commissioner for Justice, Olawale Fapohunda has today directed the Director of Public Prosecutions to consider the desirability and workability of enabling a register of unresolved crimes.

Mr. Fapohunda said he was concerned about the increasing number of ‘no case legal advices’ that he has had to issue, especially in the last few months. He further said that the register will afford the police force a additional opportunity to¬†reinvestigate¬†such cases.

Mr Fapohunda also said that the register of unresolved crimes will also go a long way in assuring victims and families of the intention of the Ministry of Justice to ensure that justice is achieved.
