The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) would like to commend the Acting Chief Justice for acknowledging the reality of corruption in the Judiciary. Indeed, the Acting Chief Justice has exhibited boldness and character.
While being aware of a number of upright Judges and other judicial officers who diligently work with integrity and honour under very difficult circumstances, LAZ is aware that indeed corruption does exist in the Judiciary. It is in this regard that LAZ has been championing judicial reforms which will among others, stamp out corruption in the Judiciary. LAZ has always called for a corrupt free Judiciary and LAZ remains committed to work with the Judiciary and all other stakeholders to tackle corruption in the Judiciary.
