Recently, the Guangzhou Intermediate Court used the latest achievement of the Guangzhou Smart Court “Blockchain Electronic Cross-examination System” for the first time to hear a private lending dispute case online.
“I can view the evidence online and complete the cross-examination before the court. I don’t have to spend a lot of time turning through dozens of pages of evidence and replying to the cross-examination opinions one by one. The efficiency of the trial is greatly improved!” Attorney Wu, the client’s attorney, praised.
Complete proof and cross-examination online
In this case, the plaintiff sued the court of first instance requesting the defendant to repay the loan principal of more than 1.16 million yuan and interest. After the trial, the court of first instance ordered the defendant to repay more than 700,000 yuan and interest to the plaintiff. The plaintiff refused to accept the judgment of the first instance and appealed to the Guangzhou Intermediate Court.
During the second instance, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, both parties who were in other places applied to the court for online hearings. However, just two days before the court hearing, the plaintiff asked Li Lusi, the law enforcement officer, for help on the phone, saying that he had many new pieces of evidence to submit. If he mailed it to the court now, and the court served it on the defendant, the defendant might not be able to receive it before the trial. arrive.
In order to avoid affecting the original trial arrangement and at the same time fully protect the parties’ right to cross-examination, Li Lu thought about the “blockchain electronic cross-examination system” that was launched by the Science and Information Office a few days ago. After communication, the Division of Science and Technology decided to launch the system in advance after completing the corresponding tests.
“The operation of the system is very simple. After the judge logs on to the system and initiates proof of the case, the parties can provide evidence through the system, and the other party can cross-examine the evidence after the judge agrees.” Li Lusi concluded after using it for the first time.
According to reports, it only takes three steps to complete the proof and cross-examination:
In the first step, one party can upload and edit evidence after logging in through the triple verification of “face recognition + ID number + name”, and the system will automatically store the evidence “fingerprint” information in the judicial blockchain;
In the second step, the law officer checks the evidence submitted by the parties, verifies whether it has been tampered with through the blockchain, initiates an exchange of evidence and allows cross-examination;
In the third step, the other party cross-examines the submitted evidence in the “blockchain electronic cross-examination system”, submits a cross-examination opinion, and the cross-examination opinion data “fingerprint” is simultaneously stored in the judicial blockchain.
In this way, through the “blockchain electronic cross-examination system”, both parties can complete pre-trial evidence, exchange of evidence, and cross-examination without leaving their homes to ensure the normal progress of subsequent court trials.
Technology improves the efficiency of court trials
“In order to ensure the traceability of the cross-examination process, the’blockchain electronic cross-examination system’ will log all the operations of the parties to the evidence during the cross-examination process. After the cross-examination is completed, the submitted evidence files are automatically saved, and the case-handling personnel can consult and review them at any time. Verification. At the same time, block chain encryption technology is used to ensure that the entire data transmission and storage are safe and controllable. “Introduced by Cheng Jie, head of the Information Technology Group of the Division of Science and Technology.
“In traditional court hearings, the parties submit a lot of evidence materials, and it is usually necessary for all parties to cross-examine and issue cross-examination opinions one by one in court, which often consumes a lot of trial time. The use of the’blockchain electronic cross-examination system’ effectively solves the problem. The above-mentioned problems can be processed online throughout the entire process of the exchange of evidence, and the cross-examination link in the trial process is also advanced before the trial. The parties only need to log in to the system and tap their mobile phones to complete the cross-examination before the trial without leaving home. This greatly improves the trial. Efficiency.” Li Lusi said.
The “blockchain electronic cross-examination system” combined with the WeChat Internet court trial system reduced the litigation costs of the parties. It is another innovative measure of the Guangzhou court to carry out the “I do practical things for the masses” practice activities, effectively improving the efficiency of evidence collection and cross-examination in court trials. , To further enhance the parties’ sense of judicial access and satisfaction, and to provide stronger judicial services and guarantees for the construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
