Chief Justice says the Judiciary must embrace live broadcasting of cases

Chief Justice Bryan Sykes says it is time for the Judiciary to embrace live broadcasting of cases as part of the principle of open justice.

Justice Sykes made the statement while speaking at the Chief Justices and Heads of Judiciaries of the Caribbean Conference opening ceremony, last evening.

He said the courts must internalize the idea of judicial accountability and its practical manifestations.

Justice Sykes said while there are security concerns, a balance must be struck between these concerns and the public’s right to access court proceedings.
