The Judicial Service has prohibited the use of electronic devices in court during proceedings.
A circular signed by Judicial Secretary Justice Alex B. Poku-Acheampong said it has come to their attention that some court users make and receive calls and record court proceedings with their mobile phones, electronic devices, recorders, tablets and cameras while court is in session.
To regulate the use of the devices, management has therefore decided that “court users are to put off their mobile phones, electronic devices, recorders, tablets and cameras before they enter the courtroom.
“Court users are not allowed to use electronic devices, mobile phones, recorders, tablets and cameras to record or snap court proceedings or any court document without the permission of the Judicial Secretary,” the statement noted.
All Judges, Magistrates and Registrars should ensure that court users comply with these directives with immediate effect.
