Sixty six new courtrooms to be constructed in 2021: Justice Ministry

The Secretary to the Ministry of Justice M. M. P. K. Mayadunne stated yesterday (09) that steps have been taken to construct 66 new courtrooms during this year.

He stated this during the ceremonious hand over of appointment letters to graduates who were recruited as Development Officers for Mediation.

“Steps have been taken to construct 66 new courtrooms during this year alone. We will facilitate them to digitize the judiciary over the next four years. Due to the fact that certain laws have not been amended for many years, several committees are working on the instructions of the Minister of Justice to amend them accordingly,” he stated.

The Secretary to the Ministry said that the Ministry is working to establish special conciliation boards to resolve land and financial disputes as well as to further strengthen the conciliation process.
