Belize’s courts receive more ICT equipment to reduce case backlog

Belize’s Magistracy has received new laptops and supporting equipment today. The idea is to continue efforts to reduce case backlog and to make the courts more efficient in case management. The new laptops come with the support of the U.S. Embassy in Belize, USAID, and the UNDP under the InfoSegura Program. Chief Justice Louise Blenman and Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser both welcomed the equipment as a means to improve the quality of service to the public.

Also speaking at the event were Mary Walz, the acting INL Coordinator at the embassy and Ian King, the UNDP’s Deputy Resident Representative. They described today’s event as a signal that international agencies continue to have Belize’s best interests at heart.

 

The embassy said today that the Magistrates will have access to the Judiciary’s Case Management Systems to reduce Belize’s criminal case backlog, support police professionalization, improve investigations and increase prosecutions. This is part of our efforts to keep improving public confidence in citizen security and effective access to justice in Belize.
