BINTULU: Bintulu High Court will be equipped with an electronic system to facilitate ‘e-payment’, which will allow lawyers to make online payment without having to carry large quantity of cash to the court.
Bintulu High Court Judicial Commissioner John Ko Wai Seng said the use of ‘e-payment’ is not only more secure but the safety issues will not arise.
“A fee payment for a case is no longer needed to be paid in cash,” he said at the Gawai Dayak Ngiling Bidai dinner organised by the Advocates Associations of Sarawak (AAS) Bintulu branch at Highland Seafood Restaurant on Saturday night.
“I hope the court staff will provide guidance and ongoing support for the success of all these efforts, thus strengthening the role of the court here,” he said.
He also mentioned about the efforts to expedite the handling of civil cases to three and six months compared with up to one year before.
