According to Supreme Court President Ruben Remigio, the law adjusts the functioning of the courts to the economic and social reality of the nation.

The legislation that will come into force on January 1, 2022, is the result of a collective, plural and enriched elaboration, said Remigio, who referred to more than 100 criteria received through consultations with legal operators, experts, lawmakers and the participation of citizens through different channels.

Its drafting took into account 31 international treaties related to the exercise of the courts of justice, such as the universal declaration of human rights and those referring to the treatment of corruption, among others. It also took into account the recommendations made in scientific research and academic theses.

Among the main elements of the new law, Remigio highlighted that it ratifies the objective of the courts to safeguard constitutional order and reaffirms the impartial nature of these institutions and judges.

The regulation updates the principles and guarantees of the judicial function, in terms of due process and effective protection, among other matters, and encourage the resolution of conflicts in the first instance, he explained.
