Majority of MSMEs don’t trust justice system – Study
Majority of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) do not trust the country’s justice system, a study conducted by the Center for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana) has revealed.
The study found that less than one-fifth of MSMEs owners/caretakers used the formal justice system to resolve business-related disputes with their clients, creditors, tax authority, and utility companies, among other institutions.
Whereas 87 per cent of businesses lacked trust in the judicial system, 10 per cent were concerned about the length of time taken by courts to resolve cases, with three per cent pointing to demand for money or favors by police officers as the reasons for not accessing formal justice service.
