The Council of the Judiciary implements electronic letters rogatory

The Council of the Judiciary implemented electronic letters rogatory in order to promote the speed of judicial proceedings. Before the implementation of this new system, the parties had to obtain the letters rogatory and file them into the court of the other jurisdiction in charge of the judicial assistance. This entailed an additional expense for the party due to travel costs.  Moreover, the letters rogatory changed its original identification number, which resulted in the lost of the documents.

Now the judge sends the letters rogatory through e-mail to the judge from the other jurisdiction within a few seconds. Once complaint, the judge sends it back through e-mail.
