The Government has been on an intense drive to digitize a number of systems in the country. From online registration of passports to digital addressing system among other digital solutions, it looks certain that the country is on a digital drive.
The latest addition to the digital pool in the management of the country is the electronic case-tracking system for the judiciary in Ghana.
One Tuesday May 22, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, launched Ghana’s first electronic Integrated Criminal Justice Case-Tracking System to support key stakeholders in the justice delivery system to collect, collate and harmonise statistical data for effective justice delivery.
The project has a special focus on crimes related to corruption, border security, maritime security and cybercrime, aimed at improving transparency, accountability and management of the country’s justice delivery system, and to boost the confidence of the citizenry in the Judiciary.
Addressing key stakeholders at the launch in Accra, Dr Bawumia said the project was of great significance to the nation as its successful implementation would enhance the quality of the justice delivery system and boost the robustness of the judicial processes.
He therefore, reiterated government’s commitment to harness the potentials of information communication technology (ICT) to address the challenges facing the justice delivery system.
According to GNA, the Case-Tracking System is a Government of Ghana Project with help from the United States Agency for International Development expected to advance inter-agency joint effort and data sharing through a coordinated data correspondence platform.
It will empower the key performers in the justice delivery system, for example, the Ghana Police Service, the Prison Service, the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General’s Department, the Director of Public Prosecutions, the Economic and Organized Crime Office and the Legal Aid, to electronically access and track the different phases of the criminal cases from the point of arrest, investigation, arraignment, conviction restoration and discharge.
