The Committee on Civil Law Reforms, appointed by Minister of Justice Ali Sabry, has pointed out the necessity of amending the current provisions governing the issuance and serving of summons. Furthermore, the committee has pointed out the necessity of using communication methods such as mobile phone messages and emails, which are commonly used at present for serving the parties to a lawsuit.
As a result, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the Minister of Justice’s proposal to draft a Bill to amend the Civil Procedure Code (Chapter 101) in accordance with the recommendations of the committee.
