Modernisierung des Justizwesens
Courts, prisons and (potential) litigants (citizens, private and public sector).
Performance of courts is measured by number of pending cases; duration of their examination and number of disputes over the sentences. In Lithuania number of cases being examined is on raise. At the same time, the number of pending cases is increasing too – 27’405 cases in 2007, 35’179 in 2008 and 43’796 in 2009 as the length of the examination of cases is increasing. There were 6% of civil cases, which duration of examination was longer than six months in 2007, 6,6% in 2008, and 7,6% in 2009; comparable criminal cases were 11% in 2007, 12% in 2008, and 14% in 2009). In addition, according to 2009 statistics there are 2873 cases which weren’t solved during a year. Significant number of proceedings is delayed due to absence of participants. With this project, quality and efficiency of Lithuanian court system will be fostered.
The capacity and the quality of judiciary as well as access to judiciary are enhanced by substantially reducing the number of pending cases (5% /year) and delays and the judiciary costs (4%/ year) for example through the limitation of transportation of detainees. This goal is reached through the use of new technologies, by implementation of E-justice measures and improved court management.
The expected results are as follows:
