UNDP supported the Malaysian judiciary to undertake a self- assessment survey based on the IFCE framework, as well as UNDP’s Judicial Integrity Checklist. About 600 of the 700 members of the judiciary completed this comprehensive checklist. Following this, UNDP supported the judiciary to undertake a prioritization workshop last October attended by about 60 senior members of the judiciary. The workshop resulted in this comprehensive report launched today that lays out the areas necessary for reform of the justice sector.
Among the key areas to be improved are court leadership and management, court planning and policies, court resources (human material and finance), court proceedings and procedures, client needs and satisfaction, affordable and accessible court services, and public trust and confidence.
