Tk 28.0b e-judiciary project awaits ECNEC approval

Law Minister Anisul Huq on Sunday said an e-judiciary project worth Tk 28.00 billion will be placed before an ECNEC meeting soon.

The minister gave the information while speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the newly -built eight-storey Chief Judicial Magistrate's Court complex, which is constructed at a cost of about Tk 420 million, in Munshiganj through video conferencing.

More than 50,000 cases have been settled through virtual courts till September 26, he mentioned.

Highlighting the role of information technology in tackling the Covid-19 situation in the judiciary, he points out that judges and lawyers need training to make virtual courts more successful.

However, he insists that the virtual court has had many successes during the Covid-19 situation.

The Supreme Court suspended the operation of all courts as part of the government efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus since March 26.

However, the court proceedings began through videoconference on May 11 after President Abdul Hamid promulgated an ordinance on May 10 that allows all courts to conduct trial proceedings through videoconference and other digital means.
