Bahrain’s judicial system goes online

MANAMA: Bahrain’s judicial system has gone online, it was announced yesterday.

This is a major shift in the delivery of justice before the courts, Cassation Court president and Supreme Judicial Council vice-chairman Abdulla Al Buainain said.

His statement came after Justice, Islamic Affairs and Endowments Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa held a meeting, using video conferencing, with Information and e-Government Authority (iGA) chief executive Mohammad Al Qaed.

The new service will allow electronic filing of cases and submitting of all defence statements, pleadings and applications to the courts during all stages of the case, including issuance of judgements. This will include cases in the first degree which was announced recently, as well as the appeal stage before the Appeal and Cassation Courts.

Protection of all constitutional and legal guarantees established for a fair trial is ensured in these electronic procedures.

Mr Al Buainain praised the continuous support by the Government Executive Committee, chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince, Deputy Supreme Commander and First Deputy Premier, who had a prominent role in the success of these achievements. All this comes in line with the development goals set by His Majesty King Hamad.
