Massive drop in number of cases being reviewed by Bahrain's courts

Manama, Mar. 14 (BNA): The number of cases being reviewed by Bahrain's courts has dropped from 34,124 in February 2018 to 10,705 in February 2021, figures released by the Supreme Judicial Council indicate.


The unprecedented achievement by the Council covers all civil, criminal and Sharia courts of all degrees.


The drop is linked to the goals and initiatives of the strategic plan adopted by the Council supported by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, the Council said.


Under the strategy, the cancellation of the annual judicial leave for all courts and the continuation of work throughout the year contributed to the speedy settlement of the largest number of cases through an efficient and swift judiciary that achieves prompt justice, the Council said.


The extensive use of online services, including filing lawsuits, exchanging notes, and executing judicial rulings electronically, has strengthened the ability of courts to complete the number of cases, the Council added.
