• Andalusia will have 19 new courts out of the 93 approved by the Government
• "The needs of the courts with the greatest workload are met, which will contribute to expediting hundreds of legal cases"
The general secretary of the Andalusian PP, Loles López, has assured this Friday that the creation of 19 new courts for Andalusia ratifies the "resolute commitment of the Government of Mariano Rajoy for the improvement of basic services for Andalusians."
López has indicated that this measure reflects "the commitment of the PP to relieve the workload of judges and magistrates", generated by the high number of cases opened in recent years, with a view to "guaranteeing coverage of citizen rights, granting better response times and improving the quality of an essential public service”.
The Council of Ministers today approved a Royal Decree creating a total of 93 new judicial bodies, of which 19 correspond to the autonomous community of Andalusia.
With the creation of these courts, the Government seeks to adapt the judicial plant to existing needs and guarantee citizens the effective protection of their rights.
The new positions are distributed among different courts of first instance (9), first instance and instruction (6), contentious-administrative (1), social (1) and commercial (1), and in all Andalusian provinces. In addition, the Juvenile Court No. 2 of Córdoba is transformed into Criminal Court No. 6.
López stressed that, with this measure, "the needs of the courts with the greatest workload are met, which will contribute to expediting hundreds of legal cases."
