Crown Actively Identifying Matters Suitable for Virtual Court



The Public Prosecutions Division, Department of Justice and Public Safety advises that Crown Attorneys are actively reviewing prosecution matters and communicating with defence counsel to identify matters that can reasonably be expected to proceed in a virtual “courtroom.”


The Public Prosecutions Division invites all counsel and accused persons to contact Public Prosecutions with respect to any matters they believe could proceed in accordance with the COVID-19 Operational Plans of the Provincial Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, and Court of Appeal of Newfoundland and Labrador.


Inquiries may be directed to the Regional Crown Office associated to the Court having jurisdiction over the matter.
