8th April 2020
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Some further updates on what we have been doing.
Working together with practitioners and the Judiciary to find technological solutions to the GAP. I have written to the Judiciary Administrator and the CJHC to push for progress on this front. A list of technological proposals has been prepared for the Judiciary to consider. At the Special Finance Committee meeting on 7th April, I requested the Judiciary Administrator to announce the Phase 2 Videoconferencing specifications ASAP.
FYI – LegCo approved $680 million for the Judiciary IT plans in 2013. Resources should not be an issue.
Stay safe, and if you have any questions please email my LegCo office. Thank you.
