Video link court evidence approved
Court witnesses will be able to give evidence through a video link after legislation was passed in the House of Assembly this morning.
Kim Wilson, the health minister, said the change would “improve the administration of justice in Bermuda by reducing costs, modernising court processes and encouraging better case management”.
She added the legislation will also protect vulnerable witnesses.
Similar video links have been in use in the UK and elsewhere for several years.
Ms Wilson steered the Evidence (Audio Visual Link) Act 2018, which won cross-party support, through the House of Assembly.
