The minority PSOE government in Torrox has rejected the proposal by the Ministry of Justice to amend the Law on Judicial Organisation which would see the courts in Torrox disappear and be replaced by a central judiciary in Málaga city.
Improvements to existing courts
The delays with the new Palace of Justice in Torrox, still suffering from planning problems, has apparently prompted the Junta de Andalucia to announce improvement works to the current facility in order to remove architectural barriers, install lifts and resolve problems with moisture in the building.
New computer system for courts
As from today, the 64 Criminal Courts in Andalucia will be linked via a computer system which will allow information sharing and should prevent judicial ‘blips’ such as cases whereby a person is released by one court because it was unaware of a search and arrest warrant issued by another court.
