Gov’t receives computers for court system
The Jamaican government has received 29 new computers that are to be deployed across the nation’s court system.
The computers were provided by the Canadian government as part of the ongoing Justice Undertakings for Social Transformation (JUST) programme and were handed over to Justice Minister Mark Golding on Thursday.
The JUST programme is a Canadian $20 million project being undertaken in collaboration with the Canadian Government, which seeks to strengthen Jamaica’s justice system by improving service delivery and the management capacity of justice sector institutions.
Golding says the new computers will be deployed according to the wishes of the Chief Justice and the judiciary.
He noted that like many countries, Jamaica’s judicial system is plagued by delays and laws that are outdated, but said the JUST programme is helping to tackle these and other these and other critical elements that needs to be addressed.
