To increase the availability of data in open formats and indicators on the implementation of the new Criminal Code, such as the number of cases, the number of first appearance hearings, the number of trial hearings, and the number of hearings that provide measures such as preventive detention.

What is the problem that the commitment will address? Currently, there is a great interest among the general public in knowing aspects of operation and performance of the new Code of Criminal Procedure (CPP). Although the Judicial Branch publishes information on the matter, such as the number of hearings held, the number of first appearances that take place, among other data, this information is obtained manually from case management systems. This does not guarantee the availability of these indicators with predictable frequencies on the part of citizens, which will allow them to carry out a detailed follow-up on the functioning of the criminal justice system under this new work regime. Additionally, a demand for data linked to money laundering crimes and their predicate offences has been identified, as well as data referring to the code of offices handled by the Judicial Branch. On the other hand, the publication of data related to judicial auctions carried out by the Judicial Deposits and Auctions Division of the Judicial Branch will contribute in terms of transparency and dissemination, which will benefit all the actors involved in said process. Part of these data were required in the Working Groups within the framework of the co-creation process of the 4th Open Government Plan. How will the commitment contribute to solving the problem?
