Next is Video Link between Court and Prison for Arraignments

Carlos Moreno

The digital revolution in our courtrooms is just one step in the overhaul of the system. The next will be creating connectivity between pertinent bodies to expedite arraignments and hopefully, justice.

 

Carlos Moreno, US Ambassador to Belize

“What’s next is we are currently working on an audio-visual connection between the Courts, the various Police Stations and the Courts in Hattieville, so in terms of the audio-visual connection with the prison in Hattieville this would save time, effort and other resources if we can have certain proceedings like arraignments, shorter type hearings where you don’t have to transport the prisoners. It’s also better for security…you don’t have the need of prisoners given the possible opportunity of escaping when they are being transported to Court. I have also in the past participated in those kinds of audio-visual arraignments where the prisoner does not have to be moved from their location and the Court and Counsel can be also present and the arraignments can proceed much more expeditiously.”
