    The Head of the Supreme Constitutional Court Adly Mansour and the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Atef Helmy signed today an addendum to an existing joint cooperation protocol between the Supreme Constitutional Court and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) at the premises of the Supreme Court in Corniche el Maadi to automate and develop the courtís work system.

    The addendum is a pursuant to the ongoing cooperation and fruitful results of the protocol signed last June.

This comes in parallel with the Courtís goals to develop the internal and external judicial work system in Egypt.

    He has referred to the close cooperation between the Supreme Constitutional Court and MCIT to transform the Court into the first paperless jurisdictive entity in Egypt. This is in addition to linking the library of the Court of Cassation and the Parliament transcript through an advanced e-network, thus supporting planning and decision-making and information accessibility.

    Signed on June 23, the protocol aims to advance the judiciary and administrative work system through the development of e-transactions and advanced technology tools, the modernization of work system and website while documenting the Courtís heritage. This is in addition to allowing information, facilitating measures, improving citizen services and developing work environment.
