Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has introduced a new technology-driven solution with the launch of Case Management and Monitoring System (CMMS) to expedite terror-related cases.
With this new system, the prosecutors can trace each case file and its progress, decreasing the dependency of prosecutors on physical case files. The officials hope that it will also enable the relevant parties to access the case information remotely.
The provincial government with support from European Union, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in partnership with the National Counter Terrorism Authority (NCTA) and the KP Prosecution Department unveiled the new system on Monday.
CMM has been designed under the framework of Pakistan’s Action to Counter Terrorism Project (ACTP). It provides the KP prosecution department with a secured in-house database on case laws, knowledge-network and peer monitoring along with an advanced scheduling calendar option for better work management.
The digital system has been developed by a team of tech experts from Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in close consultation with the KP Prosecution Department.
In Punjab, we have seen many digital projects aiming to help the justice system, we have to wait and see how the CMM will fare in the future.
