Brac Court Holds Infamous Croatian Record

Despite having an equal number of judges as the much more populous United Kingdom, and having the most judges per capital in Europe, Croatia finds itself at the top of the list when it comes to having the slowest judiciary system  in Europe.

As at 30 June 2012, there were 832,919 unresolved court cases in the country, which 133,060 of those were unresolved for more than 3 years. It is also a concerning fact that again, after 3 years, unresolved cases are on the rise slowly.

Every judge in the country currently has an average of 399 unresolved cases before them. The infamous title of being the slowest court in Croatia belongs to the Municipal Court in Supetar on the Dalmatian island of Brac. Currently one judge at the Brac Court has 910 unresolved cases before him, reports daily newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
