Commercial Courts to publish statements of claims and defense
MOSCOW, January 25 - RAPSI, Sergei Feklyunin. Supreme Commercial Court Chairman Anton Ivanov said that commercial courts will soon start publishing statements of claims, statements of defense and audio records of court hearings on their websites, the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/rapsinews.com) reported on Wednesday.
"In the near future we will begin publishing judgments on the courts' websites as well as statements of claims, statements of defense, audio records of hearings as well as motions and petitions to judges," Ivanov said at the annual meeting of commercial courts' chairpersons.
Streamlining of the commercial courts' operation without boosting costs and personnel numerical strength is a key priority, said Ivanov, adding that the development of information technologies and transition to electronic paper management offer ample opportunities to do that.
Ivanov also said that the court's complete electronic archive will soon be developed to give access to all commercial courts' judgments throughout their history.
