In a meeting with Egypt's President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi on Tuesday, Justice Minister Ahmed El-Zend revealed his intention to computerise the country's judicial system.
According to presidency spokesperson Alaa Youssef, El-Zend said computerisation has been completed in ten courts, and is underway in another 20.
The introduction of computers in these courts aims to avoid the difficulties and slow processes associated with paper documentation, as well possible damage to paper documents.
The notarisation office is also to be computerised for the same reasons.
A number of civil services were computerised under prime minister Mohamed Nazif, the penultimate premier under toppled president Hosni Mubarak.
