The Governor said the gesture was aimed at easing the transportation needs of the beneficiaries and to ensure service delivery especially in the quick dispensation of justice thereby eliminating unnecessary delays at the courts throughout the state.
He also observed that it e in recognition of the exalted position of the judiciary in a liberal democratic tradition, particularly its being an independent government arm that works in the same spirit as the executive and legislative arms to ensure good governance.
Matawalle expressed his leadership resolve to dearly uphold the sanctity of the judiciary as a vital instrument in the dispensation of justice and an interpreter of our constitution.
He noted that like all true democracies, his administration was determined to continue to work towards maintaining the independence and efficiency of the judiciary and promote its capacity for quick adjudication as a beacon of hope to the common man.
