Justice Minister Miltiades Papaioannou presented three changes for the decongestion of courts at the dialogue with the EC/ECB/IMF troika delegation that visited him on Saturday.
Following the dialogue he had with the leaderships of the two Senior Courts (the Supreme Court and the Council of State), the minister seems to adopt the view that some time-consuming court material which hinders courts from taking speedy decisions should be forwarded to the notaries.
More specifically, the proposal anticipates that the process of issuing consensual divorces, the issuing of payment orders and with a hypothec on real estate for the granting of loans to "pass into" the hands of the notaries.
In parallel, however, the Justice ministry is examining the way with which it will overcome the expected reactions by lawyers on this transfer of duties to notaries.
