Judicial reforms: Child-friendly courts
Telangana joined Goa and Delhi this week in instituting child-friendly courts, based on the concept developed by Justice and Care (fortunately for some of us, a facebook account is not needed to view said Court’s photos on their page…).
The Court is designed to make child-witnesses and victims feel safe and secure before appearing before a judge, who will not be sitting on a dais. The accused will not be present in the court, precluding the possibility of intimidation, but will be able to view the proceedings through video conferencing. More details here and here..
