Court system comes of age

courtThe tedious, time-consuming, age-old practice of magistrates recording evidence in long hand could soon come to an end.

Yesterday, an information technology recording system was installed in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, which is presided over by Magistrate Douglas Frederick.

The pilot system, which comprises a monitor, computer keyboard and microphones, signals that the end could soon be near to the days of magistrates having to write every word a witness or accused says.

However, it is not yet known when the new technology will reach other magistrates’ courts across the island.
