A Senior Counsel is suggesting that greater effort is needed to address challenges facing the criminal justice system.
The issue was highlighted by Independent Senator Sophia Chote.
She was speaking on the Impact TT Programme hosted by Andy Johnson on Power 102.1fm Sunday.
Ms Chote admitted that while she is aware of moves to improve the system that must be tackled with a level of urgency.
In the past the judiciary has indicated that several measures are being taken to treat with the back log of cases before the court as well as factors which impact its delivery of service.
Ms Chote added that the dragging of matters before the court does little to ensure justice is served in a timely manner.
