JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Supreme Court secretary said there are still 81 courts that have not actively published their verdicts through the Supreme Court’s website. “Most of them are from big cities, such as Jakarta,” he said on Saturday (25/1/2014).

He further said around 89 percent of 819 courts have published their verdicts on the website.

According to Soeroso, in order to encourage courts to publish their verdicts, the Supreme Court will require courts to send their verdict files in soft copies, instead the usual hard copies.

Soeroso added that he would hold a meeting with court chiefs in Jakarta and West Java to provide guidance on publishing their verdicts.

The Supreme Court in late 2013 announced 98 courts that had not published their verdicts, with most of them were general and religious courts.

Meanwhile, military and state administration courts’ participation reached 100 percent.
