The judicial system in Jamaica will now enjoy enhanced effectiveness thanks to a US$33 million donation from the United States.
According to Tonernews, the Jamaican Ministry of Justice received 14 new photocopiers from the International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the United States Embassy in a ceremony at the Ministry of Justice, in Kingston.
Hon. Delroy Chuck, Minister of Justice, said, “These photocopiers will be used in the parish courts primarily to ensure that committal proceedings are activated in a speedy manner.”
As most preliminary enquiries to the circuit courts will be dealt with by paper, Mr. Chuck believes the machines will play a vital role in helping the 70 parish courts across the island.
“It is interesting to note that these photocopiers that have been provided will be the main workstations to ensure that the dockets are ready when they get to the circuit (courts),” he added.
