For Immediate Release
Denpasar–U.S. Agency for International Development Mission Director to Indonesia Andrew Sisson and Supreme Court Chief Justice Hatta Ali officially launched the second phase of the automated Case Tracking System for Indonesia’s general district courts today.The U.S. Government supports Indonesia’s efforts to increase transparency and accountability in the Supreme Court and Attorney General’s Office through USAID’s Changes for Justice (C4J) Project.
This four year, 19 million USD project is under the U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership which seeks to strengthen democracy, promote prosperity, and enhance understanding for both Indonesia and the U.S. in the Asia region.
“The Case Tracking System helps judges focus more on their cases, thereby delivering justice to all persons fairly, transparently, and within a reasonable period of time,” said Supreme Court’s Chief Justice Dr. H. M. Hatta Ali, SH., MH. “The improved version will provide additional automated tools for improving management in the district courts and increasing transparency both to the public and the Supreme Court.”
“The U.S. Government is pleased to partner with Indonesia to strengthen transparency and enhance effective management which are both hallmarks of good governance,” explained USAID Mission Director Andrew Sisson. “Transparent access to timely and accurate court information increases the public’s trust and confidence in the courts.”
To date, more than 100 district courts are equipped with the automated case tracking system. This automated system is also coupled with improved public access to court information. One way this is happening is through new public information desks, like the one at the Denpasar District Court.
USAID collaborates with the Supreme Court to develop and implement the case tracking system which will allow increased access to information and efficient case management through automated registers, performance reports, forms and templates, financial journals, and differentiation of case types.
