Judiciary system gets boost

The Justice Ministry has decided to set up 60 Magistrates’, District and High Courts countrywide to upgrade the country’s judiciary system to suit modern day needs.Justice Ministry Secretary Suhada Gamlath told a residential workshop for Parliamentary journalists in Wadduwa that the Ministry has already established several new Courts in Polonnaruwa, Moneragala, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee and Jaffna.

He said the Ministry has appointed a special committee to make recommendations to establish courts islandwide. The committee has recommended the establishment of 60 courts throughout the country. This would minimise the delay in pending court cases and sort them out within a short period. The shortage of courts in the country is one of the major constraints to resolving court cases.

He said another committee was also appointed by the Ministry to look into the long-standing delay in hearing court cases. “The committee has already handed over its report to me and we will submit it for Cabinet approval.Thereafter, we intend to formulate a methodology to minimise delays in the judiciary system”, Gamlath said.
