Government Will Continue to Strengthen and Modernise Justice System

For the 2018/19 fiscal year, the Government will continue to strengthen and modernise the justice system.... Governor-General, His Excellency the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen, provided details during his 2018/19 Throne Speech in Parliament on February 15.

“The Administration has already indicated that the Legislative and Constitutional Reform Programme is among the seven priority programmes and projects set out in the Ministry of Justice’s Strategic Business Plan 2018-2021 and Operational Plan 2018/19,” he said.

The Governor-General said the Administration’s programme will contribute to the achievement of a modernised justice system, which Jamaicans deserve, starting with reducing the backlog of indictments and summary matters in the Parish Courts, improving the delivery of justice services in eight additional parishes through Justice Centres by 2019, and establishing the single anti-corruption agency.
