SIMFEROPOL, March 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimean courts will resume their functioning as of April 1, Vladimir Khalaimov, chairman of the lawyers association “Juridical Company Yurkorpus”, told ITAR-TASS.
He said courts were not working at present. Announcements were pasted up everywhere, stating that applications were not accepted and hearings were not held. The judicial system was not working. “Lawsuits and complaints received by courts before Crimea was accepted into Russia will be examined under Russian laws,” Khalaimov said.
He has said a great deal of work is ahead, setting up courts and endorsing judges.
Earlier, on March 24, the first branch of the Russian arbitration court was opened in Simferopol. “This is the first arbitration court in Crimea,” Khalaimov said. “Two Crimean companies have already instituted proceedings and the court meeting will probably be held next week,” he said.
