The United States has extended support to strengthen the efficiency and effectiveness of Sri Lanka’s justice sector.
The US Embassy in Sri Lanka said that in response to a request from the Ministry of Justice, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), on behalf of the American people, provided audio/visual equipment to the Ministry and the Commercial High Courts.
“This equipment will enable courts to record and transcribe court proceedings and will facilitate adjudication during COVID-19-related restrictions, further strengthening the justice sector’s efficiency and effectiveness for Sri Lankan citizens,” the US Embassy said.
Minister of Justice Ali Sabry and USAID Mission Director Reed Aeschliman met at the Ministry for the handover. (Colombo Gazette)
