In 2021, Dominica recorded 468 new births, 678 completed death registrations and 139 deaths were registered with pending inquests.
That’s according to Assistant registrar Nuraya Sebastien.
According to the Deputy registrar, since the launch of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court E-litigation portal on August 3rd, all proceedings filed in the Court of Appeal and all new civil high court proceedings including non-contentious probate and administration of estate matters, family matters, matrimonial and adoption and admiralty matters are filed electronically on the E-litigation portal.
She says this has proved beneficial especially to persons who needed to participate from overseas without being physically present.
