Addis Ababa, 7 February 2014 (WIC) - The Federal Supreme Court (FSC) has upgraded its 2.4 version of Court Case Management System (CCMS) to the latest 2.5 version with a view to rendering timely and efficient services to its clients.
Opening a day-long workshop on the required Study of CCMS Data Base System, Federal Supreme Court Vice President Medhen Kiros said yesterday that the court has adopted various new technologies in a bid to facilitate its day-to-day activities and satisfy the interests of the court clients.
Capitalizing on the newly upgraded CCMS Data Base System, he noted that the system enables anyone who wants to know the status of his/her case online using the court website as long as there is an Internet connection. It includes more than thirty pieces of information than the former System and helps to investigate and prevent criminal acts as well, he added.
According to Medhin, the system would play an enormous role in protecting the rights of children against violence, entering full data with regard to lawsuits of adoption, inheritance and civil code, among others.
Currently 23 courts are using video conference to preside over various cases throughout the country.
According to The Ethiopian Herald, the workshop has brought together a number of judges, registrars and other stakeholders.
