Current Measures to Combat Laws Delays 

The Budget speech of 22nd November, 2010 highlighted the fact that there are 650,000 cases pending before our Courts. The President has stated that Rs. 400 million will be committed for the administration of justice with the initial provision of Rs. 150 million in 2011.

The Ministry of Justice will set up 60 new Courts as part of this programme, and temporary courts with retired judges will be set up for a period of two years to reduce and if possible eradicate the backlog of cases.

(Extract from his Excellency the President Budget speech) "Hon. Speaker, people are not born poor. Poverty is manmade. A prolonged delay in legal disputes is one such cause for poverty. There are approximately 650,000 unsettled legal cases before our judiciary pending justice. As a result people spend valuable time and money. They cannot put lands with disputes for productive use. Therefore, I propose to implement a 3 year accelerated project to facilitate the effective administration of justice form 2011. Rs. 400 million will be committed for this project with an initial provision of Rs. 150 million in 2011.
