Over 650,000 cases piled up – Thalatha

The number of cases that have piled up, needing to be resolved is around 650,000, said Justice and Prison Reforms Minister Attorney Thalatha Athukorale.

Therefore, she said in order to expedite the hearing of cases that were delayed so far, a new automatic system would be implemented and the older system would be discarded before the end of the year.

She noted that based on the population density in certain areas, measures will be taken to construct courts complexes. Within Balangoda  there are seven police areas and two courts complexes will be built targeting these areas, she added.

She further noted that in the near future another high court complex would be constructed in the Ratnapura area.
