Government announces criminal justice reform and digital initiatives

Posted: Friday, March 1, 2024. 3:19 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: As part of the government’s #PlanBelize agenda for the administration of justice, Cabinet gave its approval this week for a number of measures addressing criminal justice reform to be introduced at the next sitting of the House of Representatives.

These include the Criminal Procedure (Plea Discussion and Plea Agreement) Bill, 2024; the Alternative Sentencing Bill, 2024; and the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Bill, 2024. The measures are collectively geared towards facilitating a more efficient system for the timely disposal of criminal cases, focusing more on restorative justice, and providing offenders who have served their sentence, paid their debt to society, and have not reoffended, to reintegrate into society without the stigma of a criminal record inhibiting them for the rest of their lives.

Also, Cabinet gave its approval for the progress and rollout of MyGOB across the government as a part of a four-year digital transformation plan to achieve a digital Belize. MyGOB will consist of services such as duty leave applications and will allow for continuous onboarding of government-to-employee services.
