AS IT designs a programme for greater digitalisation of judicial documents, Slovakia will draw inspiration and assistance from Brazil, said Supreme Court President Štefan Harabin. Harabin signed a protocol on cooperation with his Brazilian counterpart, Arim Pargendler, during a recent visit to Brazil, the SITA newswire reported on April 1.

“The main priority of the cooperation is the digitalisation of the judiciary and the exchange of judicial experiences,” Harabin stated, as quoted by SITA. “It is an original system to make court processes faster and more transparent.”

SITA wrote that organisational steps for 36 Brazilian judges to visit Slovakia’s Justice Academy are underway.

The digitalisation of court files in Brazil permits online publication of rulings in an official internet-based bulletin. All case file documents are now exclusively maintained in digital form in Brazil, with hard copies used only in older cases, which constitute about one fifth of the cases currently before Brazilian courts.
