The Courts Registry Services is responsible for:

  • receiving and processing all documents lodged to the Ministry for both Civil and Criminal Courts.
  •  It is the principal point of reference for enquiries for the legal profession and the public and check point for all incoming applications.

The Registry is a centralised service which serves both Supreme and District Criminal Courts. It ensures that the criminal listing and case-flow management system is administered efficiently and maximises the use of judicial resources. It receives and processes Court committal files, informations, (the documents lodged by the Director of Public Prosecutions to initiate criminal proceedings), as well as applications for bail, bail variation and review of bail applications for leave to appeal.
