Jurors nationwide have declared an indefinite strike, effective immediately, due to the non-payment of their allowances. 

Their decision has been necessitated by 10 months unpaid allowance by the government (dating back to February 2023, along with unpaid allowances from July 2023 to May 2024).

In a statement, the jurors highlighted the significant financial burden they have faced due to the lack of these payments.

“This situation has made it practically impossible for us to continue to pre-finance our transportation to and from the court premises,” portions of the statement read.

The jurors also highlighted that despite their commitment to the justice system, the lack of financial support has left them with no choice but to halt their duties.

The jurors noted that while they were promised payment in May, follow-ups revealed that no funds are currently available. 

The ten-month backlog of unpaid allowances has significantly strained their personal finances, compelling them to take this drastic step.

“We regret any inconvenience our absence may have on the expeditious delivery of justice,” the jurors added, acknowledging the potential impact on court proceedings. 

Their absence is expected to cause delays and disruptions in the judicial process, affecting the timely delivery of justice.
