THE Judicial Department Strategic Plan 2019-2023 launched this afternoon prioritises judicial reforms to improve the efficiency and the effectiveness of the administration of the courts.

The development and publication of the Judicial Department strategic plan was undertaken by the Judicial department of Fiji with the support of the Access to Justice Project.

The strategic plan is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Program.

Acting Chief Justice Kamal Kumar said the judicial department aimed to improve access to justice to rural and remote areas.

“We are well on track and will continue to remain so as we embark on this strategic plan.”
