St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN); Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, Dame Janice Pereira will lead the official opening of a second high court chamber at the Sir Lee Llewellyn Moore Judicial Complex in Basseterre on Monday (Mar 13).

Construction of the new chamber began late in 2016 and experienced a few delays before its recent completion.

The chamber has been outfitted with modern technology equipment for improved efficiency.

Attorney General and Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs Vincent Byron said the additional court room would help reduce the backlog of cases before the high court, thus speeding up access to justice.

“It is a model of how courts would proceed where evidence will be presented on-screen; where it will be technologically adept in making our court processes much better and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of dispensing justice in St. Kitts.

A second resident high court judge is to be appointed for St. Kitts in the near future.

And don't forget to employ the youth people to work the technology. It is better to have them working for the court then to have them before the court.
