Fact Sheet on the use of Mobile Screen
This fact sheet provides information on the importance and use of the Mobile In-Camera Screen which is a special partition made to fit within the court room for the purpose of providing a shield to victims testifying during trials of SGBV cases.
- The mobile screen is made froom wood and has wheels attached to allow users to move it around to different locations.
- The mobile screen also has a one-way mirror that allows only the victim/witness to see the defendant and the rest of the court from behind the screen, and a table and a chair for the victim/witness to sit comfortably during trial.
- The law authorizes in-camera trials when required by the state and where the court determines that the victim or witness warrants protection.
