From Monday trials will be oral. That day the document called Process Code (Cogep), approved in 2015, will enter in validity. With this, for the first time, seven types of trials, like civilians or rent, will be treated in oral audiences.
Until today, those errands were carried through written records. The Judiciary Council spent millions in paper.
With the approval of the Cogep, it was also accepted that the trials could be conducted by videoconferencing or other communication media, when the appearance of the plaintiffs, defendants or witnesses is not possible.
To this, the Judiciary Council started equipment phase of 938 rooms. But this equipment ($196 150 were invested in 758 recording devices) is only one part of all the changes for the Processes General Code to start.
