Portugal’s courts will from today be getting back to normal.

Courts today resume face-to-face trials, but leaders in the sector anticipate that the return to normal activity will be asymmetrical and progressive, and in some cases it is difficult to fully ensure security measures against covid-19.

With this return to activity, face-to-face trials and questioning of witnesses will become the rule in the courts as of today.

The Ministry of Justice (MJ) and the Directorate-General for Health have announced measures to ensure the hygiene and individual protection of those who work in the courts.
