The court of justice has opened its website to gauge public views about justice reform as addressed in the new charter.



The new court’s spokesperson, Suriyan Hongvilai, said the court would like to learn what the public would like to see as part of the reform effort on justice and so has opened its website for people to share their views with the court.

Suriyan said the new charter stipulates that justice processes must have definite time limits to ensure that justice is not delayed. Mechanisms must also be in place to help the underprivileged get access to justice and support better law enforcement to reduce social inequity.

Also, criminal investigation procedures must have checks and balances between investigators and prosecutors, while also keeping cases moving forward.

As well, justice related agencies must nurture a culture committed to delivering sound and meaningful justice, he said.

People are invited to share their views at reform.coj.go.th.
