December 19, 2010

Dmitry Medvedev issued instructions to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, President of the Supreme Court Vyacheslav Lebedev, President of the Higher Arbitration Court Anton Ivanov, and Director General of the Supreme Court’s Judicial Department Alexander Gusev as part of the drive to increase the openness and accessibility of the justice system.

In particular, the instructions involve the formation of a common information space of general jurisdiction courts and magistrates, as well as the conversion of court paper documents into electronic form.

Dmitry Medvedev also instructed the officials to design an action plan for a phased introduction of electronic court proceedings in the arbitration courts of the Russian Federation.
