You can check it by clicking the following item.
In the last 16 years, the Court Reporting Service has been using Analogue recording system to record all proceedings of the Supreme and National Courts throughout the country.
The analogue system will be soon replaced by the FTR (For The Record) Digital System commencing in 2013 in Waigani. This transition will slowly phase out the current system, with the eventual roll program to the regions in the next two to three years.
Following the successful trialing of the FTR system in courtroom 10 in August 2012, the system was installed and implemented in October. All proceedings currently being conducted in this court are captured and archived.
