Commission puts country among last on justice scoreboard

Legal proceedings last over 800 days in Italy

Bruxelles, March 27 - Civil and commercial legal proceedings in Italy take an average of 800 days to resolve, placing the country among the last on the list of European Union member states, according to the EU Commission Scoreboard presented on Wednesday. The Commission unveiled a new comparative tool to "promote effective justice systems in the EU and reinforce economic growth," in its 27 member states. The 'Scoreboard' "will provide objective, reliable and comparable data on the functioning of the justice systems," EU Commissioner for Justice Viviane Reding said. "The attractiveness of a country as a place to invest and do business is undoubtedly boosted by having an independent and efficient judicial system," she said. "That is why predictable, timely and enforceable legal decisions are important and why national judicial reforms became an important structural component of the EU's economic strategy".
