The Evidence Amendment Act, passed in May last year, has already been serving to reduce delays in the administration of justice through Jamaica’s legal system.

This is according to Chief Justice Zaila McCalla, who in an address at the swearing-in of Puisne Judges at King’s House on January 5th, said she expects all participants in the system to double their efforts this year in ensuring timely delivery of services.

The Evidence Amendment Act seeks to enhance the efficiency of Jamaica’s justice system, by providing a simpler procedure for the admissibility of computer-generated evidence, and the reports of experts, where the latter is not deemed disputable.
