Highlights of expected results

  • More effective and efficient courts, through better infrastructure and increased use of electronic/web-based services between courts and the public
  • Mediation reinforced as an alternative to lengthy and expensive court proceedings
  • New system for evaluation of judges’ performance
  • Improved correctional services and public safety by introducing electronic monitoring of released prisoners
