Law:NOLITE IN IVRE PIGRARI Act (NoPig)
WHEREAS the Ziu holds that it is detrimental to Talossa's justice system that courts are allowed not to give reason for dismissal of an appeal and not to react at all, and;
WHEREAS this endangers the course of a fair trial, and;
WHEREAS we want everybody to get a fair trial, and;
WHEREAS the Uppermost Court must, under Org.XVI.6., already supply plaintiffs with a written statement as to why it does not want to hear a case, and that other courts need not seems insensible, now;
THEREFORE the Ziu enacts:
that a new subsubsection shall be created in Title D, Section 2, Subsection 5 of the Lexhatx, reading:
2.5.1. The Ministry of Justice is solemnly charged with monitoring the justice system. This duty shall include, but not be limited to, the following tasks:
- 22.214.171.124. The Ministry of Justice shall make freely and publicly available to citizens a procedure by which they may securely and easily report the wrongful actions or failure to act of a judge or other officers of the courts.
- 126.96.36.199. The Ministry of Justice shall keep records of these reports, and investigate those that seem credible in the Ministry's best judgement. The Ministry shall report the results of its investigations and its recommendations to the Ziu, as it sees fit to do so.
- 188.8.131.52. The Ministry of Justice must respond to every complainant with the result of any investigations, notification of any action, or an explanation of inaction. Should the Ministry refuse to carry out an investigation, it must supply the complainant with a written justification of its decision.
- 184.108.40.206. The Ministry of Justice need not wait for a complaint in order to carry out such an investigation, but may initiate this scrutiny on its own, where it seems necessary.
and FURTHERMORE title G, section 4, subsection 2 of the Lexhatx shall be changed followingly:
4.2., which currently reads: Appeals or other actions brought before the Uppermost Cort shall be heard within 90 calendar days from the date of assignment by the Clerk of Courts. Should this time elapse and no decision be rendered as to whether the Uppermost Cort will hear the matter brought before it, the court will have implied unwillingness to hear the case and the decision of the lower court shall be upheld without prejudice. Parties may then re-file their appeal a final time after waiting an additional 90 days. If the court declines to hear, or fails to respond within 90 days, the decision of the lower court shall be upheld and no further appeal shall be permitted.
shall henceforth read:
4.2. Appeals or other actions brought before any national court shall be heard within 90 calendar days from the date of assignment by the Clerk of Courts.
4.2.1. The court, if it decides not to hear the case or appeal, shall issue a written statement justifying its decision within the time frame given in 4.2. 4.2.2. If a court does not comply with 4.2. or 4.2.1., it may be subject to an investigation for non-feasance conducted by the Ministry of Justice."
