|Abstract/Citation:||The Civil Procedure Code of the State of Eritrea provides the mechanism by which persons access courts for the proper determination and enforcement of their rights and duties. It regulates the process courts should follow in adjudicating civil and commercial disputes.
The Code, as a means to reach substantive justice, incorporates rules and principles with the end of ensuring both substantive and procedural justice in the judicial process. To this end, this Code provides equal and fair treatment of parties to a dispute by putting in place provisions which afford reasonable and equal opportunities at every stage of the process. It aims to govern the litigation process to an extent which leaves little or no room for any arbitrariness in exercising judicial discretion thereby ensuring fairness and justice.
