THE G25 commends the recent media statement by the Chief Justice regarding his proposal to relieve the Attorney-General of administrative control over judicial officers (session court judges, magistrates and registrars) and to place the judicial officers under the administrative control of the Chief Registrar of the Federal Court, “AG should not lead both services” (The Star, July 31).

We note from the media report that the Chief Justice had referred to a particular Public Services Circular, namely Public Services Circular No 6 of 2010, that places the judicial officers (together with legal officers) under the administrative control of the Attorney-General.
