Citizens can now file requests online for a Civil Court order to assign estate administrators and set court dates via a video call.
Court of Justice secretary-general Sarawut Benjakul said the service of convenience called the Electronic Filing for Appointment of Estate Administrator Motion, officially launched on Thursday, is part of the Thailand 4.0-inspired “D-Court” policy designed to digitise all court procedures by 2020.
D-Court – implemented initially in Bangkok but soon to go national – is expected to provide good-standard services with faster links to information about ongoing cases, he said.
Citizens should be able to determine the progress of cases involving political officeholders in three days instead of the customary 45 days.
The service is available at www.civil.coj.go.th.
Visitors fill in the information required on an electronic form, print out a court fee invoice to pay fines via a bank within three days, enter the payment slip in the system, choose a court date and confirm the motion submission.
On the chosen date, the court session would be held via video call and the court would mail the order to the contact person.
