Chief justice calls on Congress to pass the Civil Procedure Code
Santo Domingo.– Supreme Court chief justice Mariano German asked the Senate Judiciary Committee the knowledge and approval of the Civil Procedure Code, El Nuevo Diario reported Friday.
After ten years of writing the bill, German submitted it to Congress. Speaking before the Judiciary Committee, headed by sentor Francis Vargas, the Supreme Court chief justice pointed out that Civil Procedure Code draft "is not an improvisation, but was adapted to the current Constitution."
"The project is a new bill, and we took care of not copying the legislation of other countries," Germain told the committee.
He said that if the bill is approved, the Dominican Republic will be equipped with a modern code of civil procedure, with its own very simple language that fits the Dominican judicial system.
