SPEECH FROM THE TRNE | Video link, digital recording equipment installed in 78 courtrooms | New


Video linkage and digital audio recording equipment has been installed in 78 courtrooms across Jamaica.

This was revealed by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen during the Speech from the Throne at the opening ceremony of Parliament today.

Allen further told the two-chamber joint session that the delivery of the Court Case Management System – an end-to-end electronic case and document management system is well advanced.

He said the two initiatives are complementary to the efforts of the judiciary and the court administration division and will significantly transform the landscape in which courts operate by improving court efficiency, user experience and facilitating better protection of vulnerable and intimidated witnesses.

Allen also revealed that major work to expand court infrastructure will also be advanced to develop three regional court complexes in Manchester, St Ann and St James parishes and a parish court in St Catherine.
