The rapid development of technology in the modern era has required more effective and efficient case and court administration services. In addition, Article 2 (4) of Law Number 48 of 2009 on Judicial Powers requires the justice system to be simple, quick and low cost. For this reason, the Indonesian Supreme Court saw a need to reform the administrative and justice system in order to overcome the existing obstacles and challenges of administering the justice system. In order to achieve this goal, the Supreme Court launched an e-Court application in 2018 and recently launched an e-Litigation application.
In April 2018, Supreme Court Regulation No.3 of 2018 on The Administration of Court Cases by Electronic Means (“PERMA 3/2018”) was issued. A few months after, the e-Court application was officially launched and since then, the Supreme Court has continued to develop and finalize the e-Court application and regulations.
The e-Court application can process the submission of lawsuits (e-filing), payment of court fees (e-payment) and summonses (e-summons) electronically. e-Court consists of an electronic court administration process which includes the submission of:
- conclusions; as well as
- the storage of case dossiers.
