The judiciary is to roll out an Electronic Case Management Information System that it is hoped will weed out corruption as well as improve service delivery.
The robust court case management system is to replace the Court Case Administration System that has been in operation since 1997.
This system was dogged by slow court processes, slow sharing of information, as well as poor location of case files and documents.
Chief Justice, Bart Katureebe, said the Electronic Case Management Information System will be rolled out nationally in phases until it will reach to areas that have no power or electronic devices at their disposal.
Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire of the Court of Appeal noted that the Judiciary is migrating to a digital platform to improve and quicken service delivery.
According to Justice Kiryabwire, the system will greatly kick out corruption that continues to dog the judiciary.
The system is comprised of 9 pillars including internet safety. It is hoped these pillars will keep the system safe and free from interference from third parties.
The judiciary is grappling with a huge case backlog that has been worsened by a long industrial action by prosecutors.
