THE GOVERNMENT is in talks with the Supreme Court with a view to advancing measures that will speed up the notoriously slow legal procedures in Cyprus, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said yesterday.
“We have submitted some views that are included in the president’s programme to advance certain measures to expedite the dispensation of justice,” Nicolaou said.
One of the measures concerned the adoption of an automated system for recording minutes and managing cases.
Nicolaou said the measure would contribute towards an integrated computer system in Cypriot courts that would allow filing and managing cases via computers and the internet.
“We want to avoid the current bureaucracy,” Nicolaou said.
The minister said that because of the state of the economy, the government will be inevitably be forced to partner with the private sector on some of these programmes.
