MyActs – A new electronic service launched by the Government
|Email item||Print item||
A new electronic service has been launched by the Government called MyActs. Through this new e-service, citizens are now able to view all the acts that have been presented on their behalf at all civil courts.
The service is available through www.justice.gov.mt/onlineservices and users require an eID. Once logged in, they will be able to see four tabs: Register, Notification, Lawyer, and Documents through which users are able to see different details of the same act.
The Register section includes all the names of the parties mentioned in the act, the date when it was presented and other details. The Notification section shows whether the act has been notified or not; i.e. whether all parties have been notified.
In the Lawyers part, users can see which lawyer presented the act whilst the Documents section includes a scan of the actual act – currently this is limited to the Magistrate Courts but in the future there are plans to extend these scans to all courts.
During the launch this week, Minister Bonnici said that the set of initiatives to improve the services offered by the Courts started in October 2013 and since then a number of services have been rolled-out.
“Today we’re offering citizens the tools to follow all the acts presented on their behalf without the need to go to the Law Courts themselves and thus, through their lawyers or attorneys, will be able to proceed to the next phase without delays. It’s clear that these electronic services are leaving positive results as up to end of May 2015 the number of closed civil cases exceeds that of new ones; meaning that the amount of pending cases is continuously decreasing.”
MyActs is also accessible via tablets and smartphones: www.justice.gov.mt/onlineservices.
