The Judiciary Taskforce on Convicted Sexual Offenders Register chaired by JSC Commissioner Chief Magistrate Everlyn Olwande, engages stakeholders drawn from State and non-State agencies on the automation of the Convicted Sexual Offenders Register (CSOR).
The workshop aims at collecting stakeholder views on the automation of the Register which is intended to introduce efficiency and effectiveness in offender management and access to the Register.
The Convicted Sexual Offenders Register (CSOR) is a national register that captures the details of all convicted sexual offenders in Kenya. It is maintained by the Chief Registrar of the Judiciary under the provisions of the Sexual Offences Act 2006.
The Register is to be accessible at all times by Judicial Officers, Advocates of the High Court involved in criminal proceedings to which information kept in the Register has a bearing, Probation Officers, Children Officers, State Counsel, Prosecutors, police investigators, and the prisons department.
The Register may also be accessed by other relevant agencies which, in the opinion of the Chief Registrar, may require such information and by any person who demonstrates that s/he has a reasonable interest whether a person’s name has been entered in the Register.
The Convicted Sexual Offenders Electronic Register (CSOER) provides a convenient platform for stakeholders to make requests to access the register for purposes of protecting citizens, especially the vulnerable in the society.
The electronic register is linked with the Judiciary’s e-filing system. You may request access to the register through https://efiling.court.go.ke/
