Giza Court Opened after Completing Automation

The Deputy Minister for Institutional Development Ghada Labib, on behalf of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat, along with the Assistant Minister of Justice for Technical Development Mahmoud Alaa El-Din and the Assistant Minister for Courthouses Fund Affairs Abdel Hadi Mahrous, have opened the front offices of Giza Court of first instance, and the affiliated district courts. This includes Agouza, Dokki, Imbaba Police Station, El Warraq and Ausim district courts, located in Tag El Dowal Courts Complex.

This comes within the framework of the state’s keenness to achieve complete justice, issue effective judicial rulings, as fast as possible, and facilitate citizens’ lives.

The courts were opened after completing the technical development and automation work, within the framework of the project of developing litigation procedures in Egyptian courts. The project targets increasing the ability to follow up the execution of judicial rulings, ensuring the fulfillment of the state's functions and creating a national database of rulings.

The court offices provide several automated services to citizens, including filing lawsuits, issuing certificates, handling enquiries and other court e-services. Conventional litigation procedures were also automated, from filing lawsuits and issuing rulings, to saving and archiving lawsuits electronically.

The project of developing litigation procedures in Egyptian courts is implemented in collaboration between the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) and the Ministry of Planning and Economic Development. It contributes to revolutionizing the judicial work system in terms of issuing rulings, as fast as possible, through programs and applications that help reduce litigation time; secure the procedures for filing lawsuits; and execute rulings punctually. This is in addition to reducing the time needed for issuing technical reports, thus ensuring issuing rulings as fast as possible.

The project helped develop 129 courts in 11 governorates, including Suez, Port Said, Ismailia, Matruh, Alexandria, Cairo, New Valley, Beni Suef, Red Sea, South Sinai and Giza, making 39% of the total number of courts in Egypt, implemented in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice. Work is also underway to develop courts in Alexandria (East Alexandria court), Luxor and Aswan, by June 30, 2020.

The Giza Court is one of the oldest, most specialized and densely populated courts in Egypt, with the highest number of lawsuits. It comprises Giza tribunal (North Giza court), Tag El Dowal court and five district courts. It hosts high and district case hearings, and district appeals chambers.
