Tanzania to launch judicial modernization program

DAR ES SALAAM, (Xinhua) -- Tanzanian Chief Justice Mohamed Chande Othman said Monday the judiciary has set aside 120 million U.S. dollars for making administration of justice more efficient and transparent.

“As part of the modernization program, the judiciary will introduce a new training course for court stenographers along with the provision of online services,” he told a news conference in the East African nation’s commercial capital Dar es Salaam.

Justice Othman said the five-year Judicial Modernization and Justice Service Delivery Program was aimed at improving efficiency and transparency of courts in the country, the second largest economy in East Africa.

He said the program will be officially launched in Kibaha district on Wednesday by Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa on behalf of President John Magufuli.

“With the introduction of online services people will be able to file cases through the internet and follow proceedings through the same,” said the Chief Justice.

He said the newly established anti-corruption and economic crime court has also been lined up for modernization to speed up hearing of cases and judgements rendering.

He said judges tasked to anti-corruption cases should ensure that case proceedings were conducted within 30 days.

The anti-corruption court is the brainchild of President Magufuli, who announced the establishment of the court soon after he took power.
