The Federal Ministry of Justice has unveiled a technology for court reporting known as Q-Soft Denovo CRS, on Monday.
The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said the technology was geared towards enhancing justice delivery in the country.
“We are all aware of the challenges that the Nigerian Court faces in carrying out their functions manually, thereby leading to slow Justice dispensation.
“Some of the challenges like backlog of cases often leads to loss of investors and dwindling confidence of Nigerian citizens in the Judiciary.
“This has led the Federal Ministry of Justice to collaborate with Funmilayo Quadri & CO to launch the Q-Soft Denovo CRS,”
The President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Mensem Dongban, who was also present at the event noted that, “with the deployment of this technology, it will now be a win-win situation for all stakeholders in the Judiciary including seekers of Justice. I, therefore, charge end users to key into it,”
The Executive Director of Funmilayo Quadri and Co. disclosed that the device was to revolutionise the sector.
“This court record system will help the police in audio recording of confessional statements, rid prisons of congestion, and rooted our judicial legal system in technology,”
Justice Halilu called on judicial officers to use the device as it will lead to seamless proceedings in the judicial system.
