Nowadays, when computer systems fail, almost everything stops! According to recent information, a “communications problem” is today affecting several services linked to the Ministry of Justice (MJ), namely courts and the registries and notaries, which have their systems down.

Professionals cannot access e-mails, official letters or any resource electronically.

Flaw is affecting all digital court systems...

Citius, the Registry and Notary platform, the Judiciary Police and the public prosecutor's webmail system have been inoperative since midnight on Tuesday.

According to the Ministry of Justice, “This is a communications problem that is affecting access to the systems and we are trying to resolve it as soon as possible. In the Registers, the request, renewal and delivery of the Citizen Card remains available 'offline'”.

A judicial source told Lusa that professionals working in the courts “cannot access 'emails', official letters or make any communication electronically”, adding that employees realized the problems as soon as they arrived at the workplace.

The Union of Registry and Notary Workers (STRN) has been receiving complaints since early this morning that the registry offices, at a national level, are without access to computer applications, internet and email, according to information provided to the Lusa.

“For STRN it is regrettable that situations like this happen more and more frequently, even because one cannot speak of a true digital transition when applications are dated and equipment is obsolete”, says this union.

The Citius Portal is "a single point of access for legal professionals, citizens and companies, where they can find information on the day-to-day of the courts, legislation, jurisprudence and alternative means of resolving disputes".
