Recent developments in the judicial field

CEPEJ report on the dematerialization of judicial procedures and the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in Courts - Portugal - June 2009

The Portuguese Ministry of Justice asked the Commission for the Efficiency of Justice of the Council of Europe (CEPEJ) to assess the recent policies undertaken to improve “procedural flows and judicial backlogs”. This report, dated September 2009, is mainly based on the documents provided for by the Portuguese Ministry of Justice and a three-day fact finding mission in Lisbon (February 25-27, 2009), in which CEPEJ experts exchanged information with executives of the Ministry of Justice, judges, and lawyers.

New legislation has been introduced in the administrative and fiscal sectors. New civil procedural provisions are being trialled in some courts. The appeal procedures are being reformed and a new institutional act on the Ministry of Justice is being drafted.
