UK Home Office pivots to video, injects £11m into scheme for 'high-tech' virtual courtrooms

Video Enabled Justice (VEJ) will now pilot across London and south east England.

It will also create facilities for vulnerable victims to give evidence away from court, and assist key witnesses who are unable to travel. The VEJ project is spearheaded by Sussex Police and crime commissioner Katy Bourne.

The first links, managed by Accenture, will be installed in Bognor Regis, Brighton, Worthing, Chichester, Crawley, Eastbourne, Hastings, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Lewes, Littlehampton, Rye and Uckfield, ComputerWeekly reported.
