Local Cabinet decisions: Three-year plan to develop infrastructure facilities in judicial sector

The Cabinet of Ministers have granted approval for a three - year plan for the enhancement of infrastructure facilities in the judicial sector.

The Minister of Justice has submitted a proposal for the the implementation of a project to develop infrastructure facilities in the judicial sector under 06 selected subject areas.

The proposal has been submitted in the view of the unusual delay in the justice mechanism in Sri Lanka, which has become a challenge for ensuring the rule of law within the country. This deficiency is exhibited in many international indicators influencing the foreign investments as well. 

The proposal notes that therefore it is of vital importance to supply sufficient human and physical resources to the judiciary sector, to introduce novel technology, to strengthen a remedial conflict resolving mechanism as well as to introduce required legal reformations in order to resolve this issue. 

The Cabinet of Ministers have thus granted approval for the proposal to allocate Rs. 20,000 million from the budget of the year 2021 for the implementation of a three year plan for enhancing infrastructure facilities within the judicial sector.
