Court filing in Belize to go digital

Posted: Friday, April 23, 2021. 5:45 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma: On Monday, April 26, the Belize Courts will launch its new electronic filing platform.

The launch will represent a partnership between the Government of Belize and APEX to provide a solution that will improve the quality and efficiency of the provision of legal services in Belize.

APEX is a non-profit agency, dedicated to the provision and delivery of technology-enabled solutions and capacity building services to support the development and strengthening of Caribbean Court-ecosystems.

The virtual event will feature Acting Chief Justice, Michelle Arana; Acting President of the Court of Appeal, Minett Hafiz-Bertram; the Registrar General, Trienia Young, and Executive Director of APEX, Bevil Wooding.

The agreement was signed 2 months ago with APEX to provide an e-Filing system for the courts, as well as a case management system for the Court of Appeal.

Wooding said that within days of signing the agreement, the Court and APEX formed a project committee and began work to implement the e-filing solution.

“Our collaboration with APEX resulted in the implementation of an e-Filing system for the Belize Supreme Court and Court of Appeal in under six (6) weeks. This is a remarkable achievement for Belize and for APEX,” Chief Justice Arana stated.

CJ Arana added that the new e-filing platform, which uses the Curia court management system developed by APEX, will allow for faster processing of court documents by the Registry, and significant time and cost savings for lawyers and litigants.

“The new system will allow users to securely access case files anywhere and at any time. This is a significant step in our journey to modernizing our systems and equipping our Courts with the tools and capabilities to deliver quality justice services to all,” she concluded.

The project is being executed under the auspices of the Attorney General’s Ministry through the visionary leadership of the Attorney General, Magali Marin Young SC.

The launch of the new e-filing system will be held virtually from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (CST) on Monday 26 April 2020.

Attendees will include jurists and attorneys from across the Caribbean who will join their Belizean counterparts to mark the milestone.
