UNDP hands over laptops to Justice Ministry

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) officially handed over 55 laptops to the Ministry of Justice as part of it’s digital support to facilitate remote Court hearings, at a ceremony held at the Ministry of Justice. The laptops are to be used to facilitate the expansion of remote court hearings in the courts identified by the Judicial Service Commission.
