Trinidad and Tobago is experiencing several benefits since the setting up of the drug treatment court, the children’s court and other measures to ensure cases coming before the justice system are handled in timely manner.
This point was highlighted by Chief Justice, Ivor Archie, while speaking at the opening of the 2021-2022 Law Term of the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Chief Justice Archie said service, accessibility and accountability is the model being used by the judiciary locally to build public trust and confidence.
The CJ said this approach will also lead to cost effectiveness.
In delivering the Chairman’s report, Chief Justice Archie revisited the journey of the court over the past decade, outlining steps taken toward the fulfillment of the vision, the work done over the past year and the projections for the coming year.
Chief Justice Archie said meaningful changes have been realized in the children’s court and lives have been positively impacted.
