Togo develops commercial dispute management platform to speed processes for lawyers and bailiffs

(Togo First) - Judicial officers, lawyers and bailiffs notably, now have the possibility to initiate online procedures with commercial chambers via Forsetti commerciale, the commercial platform developed by Pero Groupe, a software development firm.

An information meeting was hosted on January 11, 2019, at Maison de l’Avocat. It was initiated by the national programme for justice modernization (Programme National de Modernisation de la Justice -PNMJ) and the business council (Cellule Climat des affaires) which was represented by Sandra Ablamba Johnson (photo), state secretary and coordinator of the business council. The meeting was also attended by the chairman of the bar association of Togo, Me Rustico Latévi Lawson-Banku. 

The aim of this meeting was to share information on updates to the commercial dispute management platform, notably, additional features for the processing of commercial records being used at the lower court of Lomé court of appeal.

According to Ulriche Fiacre Aihou, CEO of Pero Groupe, the new features will help lawyers and bailiffs refer to the commercial chambers online, pay legal fees online via Flooz and Tmoney, as well as check the progress of the case. The CEO also promised that soon, these fees could be paid with bank cards.  

A new system for automatic SMS or email notification to the parties or their counsel, about the case, is also added. In addition, the dispatching of the files to the judges will be made according to an automatic system.

The initiative helps take into account, the business men’s worries as far as promptness and security are concerned. It is also aimed at improving the business environment.
