e-justice starts today: An important step in Cyprus’ digital transformation

The highly-anticipated e-justice system comes into effect today, 18 December, making life easier for judges, notaries and lawyers by enabling the electronic submission of documents at all stages of the judicial process.

The Deputy Minister of Research, Innovation and Digital Policy, Philippos Hadjizacharias, said this is an important step towards Cyprus’ digital transformation.

This will be the pilot implementation of the e-justice system, with the final solution expected to come into effect in February 2024.

“We have worked methodically and with precision, and always in communication with the Bar Association and Supreme Court, in order to deliver to the public and legal workers themselves an easy-to-use, simplified and effective justice system that will provide everything they need to carry out their work exclusively digitally,” said Hadjizacharias.

Meanwhile, Law Commissioner Louiza Christodoulidou Zannetou recently said that this highly-anticipated development, coupled with the new rules of civil procedure that were implemented in September 2023, have taken the country into a new era of substantive justice reform, the ultimate goal being to ensure that justice is served faster.
