Today, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi met with Minister of Justice, Counselor Omar Marwan.
The Spokesman for the Presidency, Counselor Ahmed Fahmy, said the meeting reviewed the ministry’s efforts to expedite the completion of citizens’ cases in courts in the context of the comprehensive development of the State litigation system. The President was briefed on the process of strengthening the functioning of the courts nationwide and the impact on completion of the backlog of cases, particularly, in the courts of first instance. Only 6 family cases remain before 2021 and 2227 civil proceedings before 2020. This is a breakthrough compared to the long-standing situation.
President El-Sisi expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the judges in expediting the completion of citizens’ cases and looked forward to the continuation of this efficient performance. Cases before the courts of first instance would be completed during the current judicial year. No cases would be left before it except lawsuits related to the third decade of the current millennium, which would protect the rights of citizens and establish completed justice in society.
Counselor Marwan also reviewed efforts to upgrade the existing courts’ headquarters and buildings in all governorates and develop the technical aspect by expanding the application of AI techniques in translating spoken words into written text during judicial hearings. President El-Sisi gave directives to promote the use of state-of-the-art technology in the court system in the coming period. This would result in further speeding performance during the consideration of issues.
President El-Sisi was also briefed on the status of establishing the City of Justice in the New Administrative Capital. The City will include a central court complex, a center for studies and other relevant service facilities. This is in addition to recently honoring members of various bodies and jurisdictions, within efforts to support and motivate calibers and strengthen judicial technical competencies in order to improve Egypt’s judicial system.
