State Attorneys will today decide whether or not they will be laying down their tools, as they press home their demand for better conditions of service.

The state lawyers gave a seven-day ultimatum on October 10 for the enforcement of an order to harmonize their salaries with that of the members of the lower bench.

The state Attorneys are also demanding payment of their arrears and provision of some office equipment.

Last week, an attempt by the National Labour Commission to resolve the impasse failed.

Mrs Francisca Tete-Mensah, National President of the Association in an interview with OTEC NEWS decried the lack of support, machinery and tools such as computers, printers with toners, law reports to efficiently perform their duties.

They are also asking for training and retraining of all State Attorneys and reduction of work load by employing more lawyers.
