CrimsonLogic, a provider of eGovernment solutions and services, has been appointed to implement an eJudiciary programme in
Mauritius. This will improve court administration with aims to boost judicial transparency and efficiency, promote the legal community’s professionalism and facilitate citizens’ access to justice.

The Judiciary of Mauritius expressed, “Technology is a key focus in Mauritius as we strive to become an info-communications hub in the region.
Our collaboration with CrimsonLogic is a step towards harnessing infocomm technology in line with our vision to turn Mauritius into a ‘cyber island’.”

Commissioned by the Judiciary of Mauritius and in partnership with local partner Mauritius Network Service, CrimsonLogic will be establishing an eJudiciary platform that delivers e-Filing and Case Management capabilities to computerise internal processes for the Supreme Court in the first phase of the project. The rollout of activities from planning, designing, marketing, delivering and supporting various eJudiciary services will take place over a period of 18 months.

The programme will enable the Judiciary to move towards a paperlesssystem from a manually-based one, easing the reliance on paper and eliminating the need for physical storage space and security. This integrated platform enables seamless case filing, notary services and legal research –minimising the potential of human error and time spent on these practices.
The legal fraternity will also benefit from its single user interface wherethe easy management of cases from initiation, trial and then disposal can be facilitated. In addition, CrimsonLogic will work closely with the Judiciary to drive user adoption amongst government officials and the legal community.

Said Mr Leong Peng Kiong, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), CrimsonLogic Pte Ltd, “It is an honour to be chosen by the Judiciary of Mauritius to developand set up an eJudiciary system. Having developed and operated electronic filing and legal systems over the past 10 years for governments around the world, we are well prepared to leverage our expertise and establish a comprehensive cluster of eJudiciary services in Mauritius. The successful implementation of this eJudiciary project can serve as a reference model by other African countries that are also keen to modernise and automate the Judicial procedures.”
