Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has followed a technology-driven approach to accelerate terror-related cases in courts.
The system will modernize the case management and monitoring process and cater for the justice department’s needs.
The Case Management and Monitoring System (CMMS) has been designed under the framework of country’s Action to Counter Terrorism Project (ACTP).
Azam Khan, K-P Chief Secretary, hopes that the system will help prosecutors solve the cases quickly and more effectively as compared to the conventional methods.
Apart from that, the system will increase the accountability and transparency in the court processes as well.
Case Management and Monitoring System
Using this system, the prosecutors will be able to access all terror-related files digitally and trace the progress of each case. They will be able to access these files remotely, greatly reducing the dependency on paper-based hard copies of files.
The system was developed by a team from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in collaboration with KPK Prosecution Department. Apart from that, following organizations worked together to successfully launch the project;
- European Union (EU).
- United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
- National Counter Terrorism Authority (NCTA).
EU Ambassador Jean-Francois Cautain spoke at the launch of the system saying;
Today we have witnessed an excellent example of our co-operation which has led to the creation of such a necessary tool for prosecution.
Previously, it was presented to the prosecution department to obtain feedback on it and find any glitches. It was formally launched in KPK this Monday.
