Swift Olympics Justice


Justice Minister - Jonathan Djanogly

Courts Minister Jonathan Djanogly

New figures have revealed how efficiently and effectively the courts and tribunals service operated during the Olympics.

In the criminal courts, a process was put in place to ‘fast track’ any cases directly connected with the London 2012 Games. To date 84 such cases have been listed at London magistrates’ courts. Of the 84 fast track cases, 36 have already been dealt with by the magistrates’ courts and 28 cases have been sent or committed to the Crown Court.

The courts are now gearing up to deliver the same efficient service throughout the Paralympics games.

Courts Minister, Jonathan Djanogly said:

‘I am impressed by the dedication and commitment of the courts in dealing efficiently with these cases. It was another example, following the summer disturbances last year, of how flexible and effective the criminal justice system can be. I am confident this will continue throughout the Paralympics.

‘In the future we plan to continue this efficiency drive by rolling out digital working across the system, removing unnecessary bureaucracy and maximising the use of video technology to allow more cases to be heard without delay.’
