Attorney Ronald Marks thinks there could be more efficiency in the processing of criminal matters, if the current procedure is re-examined.
Delivering remarks at the High Court arraignment on Tuesday, Marks pointed out that there is too much formality from the stage of investigation to when the matter is brought to trial.
According to Marks, there are too many channels that these matters have to go through before they are brought to trial, and the process takes too long.
He thinks that it would do well for the administration of Justice if the procedure is re-examined with a view to speeding up the process, and reducing the backlog of cases.
Marks, however, welcomed Justice Angelica Teelucksingh of Trinidad and Tobago, who is here to assist with reducing the backlog. He also welcomed the setting up of an additional Criminal Court to sit simultaneously with the other one.
