Gov’t Committed To Digitalizing Justice Delivery System – Bawumia￼
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, encouraged Commonwealth nations to use technology in the administration of justice while speaking at the 19th triennial conference of the commonwealth magistrates and judges association in Accra today, September 5, 2022.
“The advancement in technology means that we do not have to be physically present to perform a task anywhere. We can reduce the man-hours required to perform any task. The justice system in the Commonwealth and around the world must fully embrace the power of digital tools in order to boost access to justice. “
“It will be criminally negligent to ignore the latent hour we have and allow the situation to fester where our court is clogged and justice is out of the reach of many.”
“Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the digitization of our courts was underway. We now have virtual courts for our citizens and justice for all systems that remain heavily on technology. “
