Remote Trial: Over 300K Cases Scheduled in 10 Months (CSPJ)

Rabat – A total of 15,754 hearings were held remotely in the various courts of the Kingdom, from April 27, 2020, to February 26, 2021, during which 300,269 cases were scheduled, said Monday the Higher Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ).

The Council said in a statement that thousands of detainees benefited from the remote trial system during the same period, without having to go to the courts.

The project, with very significant results, fosters the values of openness and communication on the measures adopted by the CSPJ to curb the spread of the coronavirus in Morocco, it added.

The CSPJ reiterated its continued commitment to carry out this project so as to enable the courts to fulfill their constitutional duties and to enshrine the right to a fair trial within a reasonable deadline.

It has also put forward the sense of responsibility and commitment of all components of the judicial system, while calling on all actors to strictly respect the recommended preventive and precautionary measures, in order to avoid the risks associated with the spread of the pandemic.
