Lawyers call on Justice Ministry to reform e-court.
September 21, 2012
The flagship idea of the Justice Ministry, electronic court dealing with the easiest cases such as unpaid phone or electricity bills, is meeting increased criticism of Polish lawyers, the daily Rzeczpospolita reports.
Lawyers alarm that e-court is often used to swindle money as some creditors file non-existing claims or file the same claims several times.
Polish judges association Iustitia called on the Ministry to reform the e-court.
The Justice Ministry is aware of existing problems and is working on a new IT system which would eliminate such abuses, deputy minister Jacek Golaczynski said.
