Dhiraagu signed up for court video conferencing services

Maldives-based telecoms group Dhiraagu will provide video conference technology to link the country’s Criminal Court and Maafushi Magistrate Court under a new agreement with the Department of Judicial Administration, reports Haveeru.

Ibrahim Ahmed Manik , the Chief Judicial Administrator, said at a signing ceremony that launching the video service, which has been devised to remove potential difficulties in transporting people between the individual courts, had been delayed from earlier this year, adds the report.

The Department of Judicial Administration has also claimed that it has met about 99 per cent of the annual objectives stemming from its 2010 budget. These objectives include training for both judges and administrative staff in skill areas like conferencing and IT skills, as well as programmes to improve English, according to Haveeru.
