Iran's prosecutor general not ruling out creation of virtual BRICS court

Tehran, June 19 (UNI) Iranian Prosecutor General Mohammad Movahedi Azad did not rule out on Wednesday the creation of a virtual BRICS court to speed up judicial investigations within the bloc.

"Prosecutors in member countries can use new communication technologies such as videoconferencing in international judicial cooperation, for instance, to involve the lawyers of the defendant, hear the testimony of the accused or witnesses remotely, and ultimately to create a virtual court to speed up judicial investigations and reduce legal costs," Azad said at a plenary session of the 6th Meeting of the BRICS Heads of Prosecution Services.
