Parliament approves the automation of judicial record issuance

(Togo First) - On March 30, 2021, the Togolese parliament passed a decree approving the digitalization of the process to secure a judicial record. The initiative which falls under the government’s E-Administration project also aligns with the modernization of Togo’s legal system.

Initially expected to be effective next month, the initiative has been postponed to May. “In the meantime, major reforms will be implemented to secure the procedures related to the issuance of this document,” observed the National Assembly’s president, Yawa Djigbodi Tsègan.

Thanks to the new provisions, it will be possible for all Togolese to submit online, the application, payment, and processing of judicial records, simply by connecting via smartphone, tablet, or computer,” Tsègan declared.

This should help save time and drastically lower costs incurred in getting a judicial record. In effect, the initiative enables citizens to obtain the document without having to go to their place of birth. Instead, they just have to indicate where they would like the document delivered.
