Judiciary Permanent Secretary Pius Bigirimana is in Armenia.
The PS, who was in September blocked from travelling to Los Angeles for a judiciary conference along with Chief Justice Bart Katureebe, travelled to the land locked Asian nation for a due diligence mission.
Accordding to sources in the judiciary, Bigirimana led a Ugandan delegation to the Synergy Facility in Yerevan, Armenia .
The Armenian company will supply the Judiciary with the Electronic Court Case Management Information System (ECMIS) which will be used to monitor and track the files that have been disorganised by some unscrupulous elements.
“The ECMIS will fight corruption because it will reduce human-to-human interaction and thereby making it un-attractive to engage in corrupt tendencies,” the source said.
“ECMIS will also reduce delays and case backlogs that has been a menace to the institution by automating and standardizing manual procedures.”
Bigirimana’s American Visa woes allegedly stem from the 2012 Shs 500bn corruption scandal that rocked the Office of the Prime Minister where he served as Permanent Secretary before moving to Gender Ministery and later the Judiciary.
