Turkish delegation calls on Chief Justice

A four-member delegation from Turkey on Wednesday called on the Chief Justice, Mrs Georgina Theodora Wood, in Accra.

It is in line with the framework of cooperation between the Judicial Service of Ghana and Ministry of Justice of Turkey on the modernisation of the Ghanaian judicial system, facilitated by the Ministry of Communications.

Mrs Wood said it was a privilege for a Ghanaian Judicial delegation to visit Turkey about a year ago to study their e-governance system.

She said since that visit, the Judicial Service and Ministry of Communications had had some deliberations on how to implement the project.

Mrs Wood said the visit to Turkey in addition, exposed the delegation to use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) by the Turkish judiciary to enhance justice delivery.

The Chief Justice noted that the reciprocal visit would open other areas of cooperation between the Turkish and the Ghanaian judiciary.

She expressed hope that introduction of the e-governance system would help to improve documentation and remand cases.

Mr Kanan Tepedelen, Turkish Ambassador to Ghana, who led the delegation, said he was delighted that the Turkish e-governance system was being appreciated by many countries including Ghana.

He said the visit would also pave the way for cooperation between Ghana and Turkey in ICT.

Mr Ali Riza, Deputy Head of ICT, Turkish Judiciary, said the delegation was in Ghana to explore the type of cooperation that would be beneficial to both Turkey and Ghana.

He said Turkey had a good ICT system which the Ghanaian Judicial Service could learn and improve its court system.

Mr Riza said the delegation was not in Ghana to impose any system on the Ghanaian judiciary but to learn and build on the systems in existence.
