Figures from the parish court statistics reports for January to June show that there was an average of 2,451 new criminal cases filed across all parishes monthly, with a total of 14,824 new criminal cases entering the courts for the first six months of 2018.

Although the overall clearance rate for the second quarter of 2018 was 98 per cent — an improvement of nine per cent over the first quarter — the figures indicate that there are still more new cases filed than cases disposed of across parish courts.

The island's courts are choked with cases arising from domestic situations, an inordinate number of cases involving assault occasioning bodily harm, unlawful wounding, wounding with intent occurring in the family courts and the supreme court.
