(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, June 15 (Petra) - Minister of Justice, Bassam Talhouni said the ministry is working to find easy, quick and inexpensive procedures for small claims cases soon, in order to save time and effort to citizens.
In a workshop on minor conflicts organized by the ministry in cooperation with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) at the Dead Sea, Talhouni added that the increasing number of simple cases before the Conciliation Courts has prompted the work to find quick and easy procedures for such cases.
Talhouni stressed the ministry's interest in finding fast-paced solutions and developing a Jordanian model in this regard, based on providing a quick and inexpensive settlement to these disputes without harming the basis of a fair trial.
UNDP Representative Richard Chambers said: "The Ministry of Justice has already supported several issues, the most important of which are mediation and arbitration. This initiative is linked to people's issues," expressing hope to adopt an effective system of small disputes.
