The judiciary expresses concern with the crime situation especially murders in Trinidad and Tobago.
Chief Justice, Ivor Archie, says the development points the need for improved tools, training and methods in the fight against crime.
CJ Archie made the comments while speaking at the Commemoration of the Opening Of The 2023-2024 Law Term held at the National Academy for the Performing Arts today.
Mr Archie said even the way the judiciary operates must be under better structure and staff models.
He again reiterated his point for the judiciary to have greater autonomy to be able to handle matters in areas such as staffing and funding.
However, he made it clear there is no conflict between the judiciary and the executive and the two sides have met to discuss matters of importance recently.
