Short Update: In the Netherlands, courts closed for non-urgent cases

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

 

Courts in the Netherlands have almost completely closed, with only the most urgent cases -  such as those involving pre-trial detention - proceeding in person. Most work is now being conducted remotely, including police questioning, via phone or email. The public is prohibited from attending the cases that do take place in person, as are attorneys who show signs of being sick.
