Open Net has been actively advocating for open data including court decisions. In February 2017, MP KEUM Taesup, with the support of Open Net, proposed an amendment to the Civil Procedure Act and an amendment to the Criminal Procedure Act that would enable full disclosure of court decisions. The Supreme Court recently announced that it would start building a comprehensive judgment search system (Oct. 8), now including criminal judgments. Open Net is campaigning for MP Keum’s bills for more transparent and fair judiciary and the people’s right to access information.
