Short Update: With courts closed, Dutch attorneys are working to rapidly dispose of non-urgent cases

FairTrialsAdmin - March 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Remote Justice, Court closures

 

Courts have closed until at least April 6, with the exception of urgent and legally required hearings, such as pre-trial detention cases. Defence lawyers have been going through their caseload to determine which their cases are the most urgent, and consulting with prosecutors and judges to try to speed up the process and dispose of cases. Much of this work is being done remotely, as everyone shifts to working from home.
