PUTRAJAYA: The e-Courts online filing system will be integrated with 14 government agencies following the roll out of its second phase, says Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria (pic).  

He said the e-Courts system would give both users and the agencies faster and more accurate access to information. 

Among the 14 agencies to be integrated are the Royal Malaysian Police, Road Transport Department, Immigration Department, National Registration Department, Insolvency Department and Prisons Department.

The court infrastructure digitisation programme, which was rolled out in 2009, allowed lawyers to file case management and civil cases online at eight primary court complex including Kuala Lumpur, Shah Alam, Ipoh, Penang, Johor and the Palace of Justice.

Arifin said Phase Two would also bring the court bidding system online.

"Having bidding online would increase its integrity and transparency, and remove manipulation and abuse present in the manual bidding system. It would also speed up debt recovery," he said, after launching Phase Two of the project at the Pullman Hotel here on Friday. 

The project is being undertaken by Omesti Bhd, which completed the first phase of e-Courts in 2011, and secured the RM31.015mil contract for the second phase.

Omesti executive director Mah Xian-Zhen said also in the works is a mobile app for online case management and filing services for criminal cases. 

Currently, lawyers could only access civil cases on the e-Courts system on desktop computers.

"With such a tight schedule of only 18 months in total, there’s no time to waste. Our team has been hard at work since January," said Mah, adding the project is targeted for completion by July 25 next year.

The new system would first be introduced in Ayer Keroh and Kuantan courts.
