Chief Justice, Sophia Akuffo, has revealed that Ghanaians will soon start filing court cases online.

The initiative is likely to commence next month, March 2018.

According to her, the online process will improve justice delivery and eliminate human face interactions.

She also explained that the Judiciary has often been faced with challenges when it comes to keeping in time with the filing of cases and adjudicating them.

Mrs Akuffo however believes, the enrollment of the online filing system would ensure that the Judiciary is more productive and dynamic in the pursuit for justice.

This, the Chief Justice said, can be done by ensuring that the amount of face-to-face interventions other than inside the court is effectively eliminated.

She stated that, measures have been put in place to ensure that dealings between litigants and officials of the courts particularly at the registry and at the clerical level is limited to only what is necessary.

“So, from the beginning of next month we will be rolling out the online filing system,” she said.

Mrs. Akuffo has therefore, charged the Judiciary Service to do their utmost best to expedite cases that are brought before them.

She cautioned that, the longer it takes for the verdict of a court case to be out, the more the citizenry loses its confidence in the Judiciary.
