On 19.06.2015 the Bar Association of Sofia organized and held a Round Table on “Legal Aid, Experience, Achievements and Pending Issues.” BISOFT Ltd. developments and achievements concerning the electronic communication between the Sofia Bar Association (SBA) and Sofia District Court (SDC) were highly appreciated by the Chairman of the Sofia District Court. Another discussion focus at the meeting was the issue of prevention of abuse done by lawyers in terms of creating false notification letters. The development and introduction of a unique graphic (QR) code by BISOFT Ltd. was recognized at the meeting as a good preventive measure against this type of abuse. Here are some highlights from the forum: The Chairman of the Sofia District Court, Mr. Metodi Lalov, praised the work of the Bar Association in this composition, speaking of the extremely good coordination work between SBA and SDC after the introduction of an electronic system for filing requests and appointment of legal representatives under the Legal Aid Act and the Civil Procedure Code. This system is a step towards electronic justice and prevents abuses associated with the provision of legal aid offered in an unlawful manner.
The Round Table continued with the following topic – Current Issues, Proposals and Discussions. The Vice-President of SBA, attorney Konstantin Dimitrov, familiarized the participants with the established by the SBA abuse violations by lawyers who provide legal assistance, on the basis of false documents, which are not issued by the SBA under the established procedures and with the measures taken against those lawyers.
Measures taken against such abuses are reflected in the establishment of electronic links with all relevant authorities who provide legal aid as the SDC working stipulations have stated for more than one year. It was reported that such a link is already established with the Sofia City Court and Sofia Administrative Court. Another measure against creating false notification letters is the introduction of holographic stickers with unique numbers and a number of built-in protections.
