The Difficulties of 2020's 806 Ordinance
Colombia attorney Inés Elvira Vesga wrote an article for Asuntos Legales about Colombia's 2020's 806 Ordinance. This ordinance was implemented in response to a crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the crisis, the Judicial Branch and the Justice System of the country were affected by the temporary suspensions of face-to-face attention to users, procedural terms, prescription terms and expiration terms. Ms. Vesga highlights the benefits that the ordinance brought and how the Colombian government seeks to turn it into permanent legislation.
