The judiciary is being urged to permanently keep virtual courts going in Trinidad and Tobago.
Attorney at law, Martin George, states many benefits have materialised, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the use of virtual courts.
In a video on Friday, Mr George said the move has helped to make the justice system operate in a more efficient manner.
Mr George defended the use of virtual courts, adding the local judiciary should never return to in person trials except maybe in the case of criminal matters where one has no choice except to go back in a physical court room to address a jury.
Mr George insisted, in terms of the civic arena virtual trials should be kept on board as a plus and blessing to the justice system.
Mr George said concerns have been raised about the slow pace of justice but insisted when there are positive developments they should be acknowledged and highlighted.
