    Prosecutor General, ICT Minister Sign Protocol to Develop Public Prosecution Work System

    Cairo, 8 November 2019

    The Prosecutor General Hamada El-Sawy and the ICT Minister Amr Talaat have signed a protocol of joint cooperation between the Public Prosecution and the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) to implement a number of projects to develop and modernize the Public Prosecution work system.

    The protocol comes in the framework of the national plan for modernizing the means of judicial performance and the relevant e-services provided by the Public Prosecution. The aim is to facilitate litigation means and procedures, and ensure citizens receive their rights without suffering, within the framework of constitutional and procedural legitimacy.

    It also comes in the framework of the national project for digital transformation in Egypt, sponsored by political leaders, on which the government is keen to implement in close cooperation between all ministries in their respective fields.

    The three-year protocol aims to develop the judicial and administrative work through increasing the use of e-transactions and modern technology. This is in addition to contributing to achieve the transformation into a digital society and building a modern information society to help save citizens and employees’ time and effort through using IT to facilitate and secure adopting procedures.

    This will help drive economic growth through increasing the use of e-transactions, raising efficacy of managing government activities, and extracting indicators that support decision-making for senior management levels. This is in addition to improving the quality of the Public Prosecution services and their compliance with the international quality specifications, and establishing ties and trust between the judicial bodies and different government institutions.

    The protocol framework encompasses a number of technology projects with direct effect on service recipients. This includes developing the Public Prosecution information centers to host the protocol projects; establishing an alternative information center; managing these centers through specialized companies; and adopting law enforcement, the family prosecution and the personal status projects nationwide.

    This is achieved through establishing a network to link all prosecution offices, involving the same infrastructure, the plan for adopting the national law enforcement project, as well as developing the prosecution offices’ infrastructure and introducing developed applications. This is in addition to developing the front office applications for dealing with citizens, and developing planned applications; and establishing an electronic link between different departments.

    In addition, the protocol includes adding all Public Prosecution cases and their data by specialized companies, and developing a unified portal for providing the Public Prosecution services to facilitate communication with citizens, and the services offered to the Public Prosecution staff.

    This is in addition to providing a range of new e-services for citizens through mobile phones, call centers and the Internet, to save time, effort and money. Services are fully provided through these means without the need to visit the service provider office. This shall be applied in all the protocol projects.

    Furthermore, the protocol provides for developing a unified mobile app for all judicial bodies to serve citizens, with saving each body’s data in its information center.

    In training and human development, the protocol provides for carrying out training courses to establish project management offices (PMO); providing computer-based training for employees on different prosecution applications and data entry; and using modern apps in long-distance learning, with working on establishing and preparing a permanently specialized training unit.

    This is in addition to providing specialized training on all technologies used in the Public Prosecution information centers, including applications, safety systems, devices and equipment.

    The protocol also entails the electronic marriage officiant project through which a central application for marriage officiants shall be developed and introduced nationwide. The project aims to provide printed marriage e-certificates through the personal status current system, with the ability to read national ID numbers and detect fingerprints. The project equipment will be controlled through the central application linked to the concerned authorities. Tools and equipment will be provided for 5200 marriage officiants and 480 Public Prosecution representatives in automated prosecution offices nationwide.

    Moreover, the protocol includes the development of a data platform, with the aim to provide an analytical data platform according to the terms of reference of each project and of projects related to databases and information produced.

    According to the protocol, MCIT will provide the needed tools, equipment, local networks, connection lines and security systems; connect different sites; provide licenses for databases and applications; handle engineering and civil development to equip sites under development; and provide computer- and fast data entry based training for the system users.

    The protocol comes as a complement to the success achieved with the previous cooperation protocol inked between the two sides, and the positive impact of its projects. This included facilitating procedures and improving the services provided to citizens and work conditions for employees.

    The protocol also reflects the constructive collaboration between the two sides that aims to raise the efficacy of services provided to citizens through a number of objectives. This includes laying the foundations for the development of government performance, improving control and management, and carrying out national projects for establishing the technology infrastructure that aims to transform the Egyptian paper society into a digital one, thus helping securing and safeguarding documents, improving work conditions of employees and raising performance efficiency.
