Bahrain: All Civil, Commercial Cases Now Fully Electronic
Chancellor Abdulla bin Hasan Al-Buainain, President of the Cassation Court and Vice President of the Supreme Judicial Council, announced that all procedures of civil and commercial cases of all types and degrees are now fully electronic which comes as a major shift in the delivery of justice before the courts.
The new service will allow the electronic filing of cases and submitting all defence statements, pleadings and applications to the courts during all stages of the case including issuance of judgments. This will include cases in the first degree which was announced recently, as well as the appeal stage before the Appeal and Cassation Courts. The protection of all constitutional and legal guarantees established for a fair trial are ensured in these electronic procedures.
