Akufo-Addo advocates technology for quick justice

Technology alone will not ensure a speedy delivery of justice. The key to delivering quick justice is having rules to call for expedient filing guidelines, court dates and hearings, and a willingness to adhere to the rules. Yes, the judicial system in Ghana needs a technological infusion, but the public and those within the judicial system also have to walk away from the system of corruption that has for many decades turned the justice system in Ghana into a snail race. Bring in better technology, take measures to punish bribe taking or giving, and simply court rules while ensuring that these rules respect the essence of time. There's no reason for cases to drag through the courts for years when they could in essence be adjudicated in a matter of months. And while the President is on the subject of the courts, loading the Supreme Court with more Justices is not an efficient way to achieve an expedient delivery of justice, for that is nothing but a political over-kill.
