The Government has passed the Plea Negotiations and Agreement Act 2017 which allows persons who are accused and are guilty of committing the crimes alleged, the option of agreeing to plead guilty. This will entitle them to a reduction in sentence.

Many persons have had matters before the Criminal Courts for several years. In instances where such persons plead guilty, their sentences will be less than if they been tried and found guilty.

A plea of guilty will enable accused persons, victims and witnesses to move on with their lives.
