Justice Minister Delroy Chuck, says the government has not retreated on a promise to modernise the Justice System despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister Chuck says the pandemic has brought into sharp focus the need for greater efficiency in the system.

The Minister says under the new dynamic created by COVID-19 it’s not enough to simply clear the backlog of cases.

He says a new normal for justice must be sought.

Minister Chuck says in this regard, a more rapid roll-out of technology in the justice system is underway.
