Innovation and Development: Online Courts
Pei Xianding, president of the First Circuit Court and chief judge of No 2 Criminal Division of the Supreme People's Court of the People's Republic of China, chaired the sub-conference themed "Innovation and Development: Online Courts" at the World Forum on Rule of Law in the Internet on Dec 5 in Wuzhen, East China's Zhejiang province.
He said that judicial functions in many countries and regions meet the development demands of the internet and new mechanisms of internet judicial operation are under exploration.
So far, three internet courts have been launched in Hangzhou, Beijing and Guangzhou in China, which contribute to new internet judicial trial modes and are useful in making available litigation proceedings and substantive rulings.
Pei expressed his confidence that all countries could push forward the construction of an internet judicial system through cooperation and mutual learning.
