CSM reveals how many files are older than 10 years in courts. Some are older than 20!

The number of files older than 10 years pending in the courts in 2014 and the first half of 2015 exceeded 200, being identified 4 files that are older than 20 years, a report issued by the Judicial Inspection and made public by CSM reads.
The section for judges with the Superior Council of Magistracy (CSM) has approved on Thursday the report of the Judicial Inspection on the monitoring of the files older than 10 years pending in courts in H1 2015.
Countrywide, statistical data analysis reveals that the number of files older than 10 years pending in courts in H 1 and H 2 of 2014 and H1 2015 is constant – 225, 221 and 225 files respectively, of which, in H1 2015: 192 files being 10-15 years old, 29 files being 15-20 years old and 4 files older than 20 years.
The section for judges considers that the excessive duration of court proceedings may affect the parties’ right to a fair trial. Therefore, these files should receive the judges’ increased attention by granting short terms and procedural measures to help accelerate the proceedings.
