Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal said on Thursday that every court in the country will be turned into an e-court and the trial proceedings will be conducted through videoconferencing not requiring notorious criminals to appear in the court.

"All the activities of the Supreme Court and lower courts will be automated and brought under network," he said during his budget speech in parliament on Thursday.

Information on the current status of the cases pending in the lower courts, the date of hearing and the full verdict will be published on the website regularly.

He said the country's overall justice system will be digitided under the e-judiciary project and the litigants would be able to enjoy the benefits.
