SINGAPORE - The system of tracking criminal and youth court cases in Singapore courts will be switched from a paper-based process to an electronic one.
The Integrated Criminal Case Filing and Management System (ICMS) was launched yesterday at the State Courts, with Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon as the officiator.
The new system links all criminal justice stakeholders in Singapore, with an e-filing and e-workflow case management system for the criminal courts. It tracks cases from registration to disposal.
Enforcement agencies can start criminal prosecutions and other criminal matters electronically at any time of the day without making a trip to the courthouse.
ICMS was implemented in phases from July 2013.
With ICMS, duplicate entries in court files are avoided and case information is entered into the system once.
Court orders such as warrants of arrest and warrants of remand can also be generated automatically.
