Lithuanian courts are in lead of the European Union (EU) in terms of publishing rulings, use of electronic technologies, transparency of case distribution, accessibility of general information on courts, time-frames of hearings and methods of media communication, says Renatas Norkus, the chairman of the Supreme Court.

"Courts are becoming increasingly transparent and open in the spread of news about courts, their daily work, features, values and principles. It is becoming easier for a university and a school student, a witness or a volunteer helper, a person in search of who could defend his rights to come to court and realize what goes on there, how and why," Norkus said in his address at the General Meeting of Judges in the Vilnius district on Friday.

In his words, Lithuania's society has the highest standards for judges hearing their cases and does not forgive any mistakes.

"We have to admit we are among the strictest in Europe in this sense," said Norkus.

Some 62 courts with 778 judges operate in Lithuania. An average of 1,500 cases of various size are heard in courts every day.
