Bello said this was an effort to improve justice delivery, through the development of online courts and digital processes.

He added that he had seen how judges toiled to ensure that justice was delivered and under the most uncomfortable conditions.

Bello noted that justice cannot be insulated from the digital revolution, especially as technology development continues to advance, the law and justice system should not be frightened of it.

According to him, technology should be harnessed to provide better and more efficient services to the public as it improves access to justice, stressing that the software offered litigants, through their counsel, the opportunity to file their matters comfortably online.

It was gathered that many judges were in attendance and asked questions from the consultant, who explained the workings of the software.

Recall that on October 28, 2020, the FCT Judiciary also launched a digital speech recording machine and video transcription system, for quick and efficient court proceedings.
