Floridis stressed that the old map of courts is “completely overhauled.”

“Acquiring a unified, concentrated, qualitatively and quantitatively better first-level structure for judges, in a way that makes the operation of first-instance, criminal, and civil courts of Greece faster and more efficient and effective [is the aim],” Floridis said.

Government reforms in the sector are set to reduce court case delays that are multifaceted, including institutional changes in the Criminal, Civil, and Administrative Codes.
