Introducing technological solutions to court processes by integrating case management and establishing e-filing systems can address geographical challenges and bridge the gap between courts and communities, particularly those who are residing in outer islands thereby increasing access to justice. The Covid-19 crisis has also shown us the criticalness of technology in business continuity. Courts need to be equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to work remotely and be able to provide services via digital and virtual platforms.
The Department of Judicial Administration (DJA) has developed the Maldives E-court Management System (MEMS) to address the need for a virtual platform to facilitate easy access to services. The MEMS include an employee’s information system (EIS), mail management and a court module. DJA is currently working on further developing MEMS to be a centralized case management application with features such a criminal record clearance portal, form submission portal (including marriage and divorce application) and e-filing portal.
UNDP has been supporting the digitalization of the justice sector to facilitate provision of services via digital and virtual platforms including virtual hearings to enable access to justice for all sectors of the public and especially vulnerable groups. In view of the existing needs, UNDP under its Integrated Governance Programme (IGP) with DJA is seeking the support of a local consultant (Software Developer) to support the development of the additional features of MEMS.
