The Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, has issued a stern warning to persons, who will attempt to sabotage the Electronic Justice Project, a paperless court system rolled out by the Judicial Service.

Madam Akuffo, was speaking at the launch of the 97-million-dollar E-Justice project at the Law Courts Complex in Accra.

The E-Project is part of government’s E-Transformation programme which seeks to automate the existing manual filing system with the Registries of the Courts, from the filing of cases to the execution of the courts decision.

The project wholly-sponsored by the World Bank through the Ministry of Communication would be rolled out fully among the 44 courts housed at the law Courts Complex in Accra.

The Judicial Service of Ghana is the implementing agency and a South African firm, Messer EOH, is the Solution providers, with an American firm Messer Leading Associates playing a supervisory role.

The Chief Justice noted that the E-Justice project will yield the needed benefits when the people working with it show commitment.

She appealed to all to do away with interference and sabotage since those are the very attitudes that kill public confidence in the system.

The Chief Justice stressed the need to apply process integrity and security to ensure the success of the project.

She said the Judicial Service has learnt a lot of lessons during the Pilot stages of the E-Justice system and is now ready to roll out the project in all regional capitals including Tema by the year 2022.

According to her, the lower courts which constitute the backbone of the judicial process would not be left out during the period.

She was optimistic that by 2025 all the courts in the country would be connected to the project adding that the Judicial Service is holding discussions with the World Bank in that respect.
