Business community representatives provide recommendations
for enhancing judicial websites

On October 31, 2017, the Open Justice Project organized a roundtable with representatives of the Moldovan business community to discuss the kinds of legal information they would like to access online. This Open Justice activity supports greater transparency and accountability of the judicial process, which is critical to local and foreign investors in Moldova and thus to economic development.

The Open Justice team presented the content of the current webpages of the Superior Council of Magistracy, the Agency for Court Administration, and the National Court’s Portal and collected feedback from the roundtable participants on needed improvements. Roundtable participants recommended the following changes: posting information in three languages, Romanian, English and Russian; providing information for persons with special needs via modern e-tools and apps; publishing court statistics online, including on court performance; and offering advanced search engines so businesses can find out if companies were previously involved in a court case.
