Judges' sentences affect courts in Almada, Aveiro, Coimbra, Évora, Lisbon and Porto on Wednesday

The ASJP statement says that on 21 November the sentence will be covered by judges of the following courts and departments of the higher courts: the competition, regulation and supervision court; The Maritime Court; Intellectual Property Court; the courts of enforcement of the judgments of Coimbra, Évora, Lisbon and Porto and the administrative and fiscal courts of Almada and Aveiro.

The ASJP also recalls that there are departments of the Supreme Court, the Supreme Administrative Court, the Constitutional Court, the Court of Auditors, the Courts of Appeal of Porto, Coimbra, Évora, Guimarães and Lisbon and the North and South Central Administrative Court, which meet on Wednesdays, fairs

"Witnesses and other interveners who have been summoned to judgments or judicial proceedings that are not enforced on account of a strike may be entitled to compensation for travel expenses and damages incurred by the State", advises the ASJP.

The procedure for reviewing the Statute of the Judges of the Judges (EMJ) led to the 21-day interim striking of 20 November 2018 – Tuesday the only date for all courts – and October 2019 – always on international dates relating to fairness.

The item is called every day for all judges in all judicial, administrative and tax courts, the Constitutional Court and the Court of Auditors, but with the exception of November 20, it will be executed only in some courts, communicated at the appropriate time.

Given that "judges were not taken into account in the process of amending the statute," the PACE, which has 2,300 members, argues that the EMJ is "a fundamental law for the organization and balance of the state's competence, justice and guarantees of a fundamental right of access to an independent court" be the subject of a "participatory procedure with effective consultation on the legal representation of judges".

The union considers that the judges can not accept the adoption of an incomplete statute which in the last three decades does not provide sufficient strengthening of judicial independence or the elimination of career blockades, prolonging with unnecessary social costs, dragging the conflict.

The trade union association of judges has launched a public petition on this topic, which will be handed over to the President of the Republic, the President of the Assembly of the Republic, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Justice and parliamentary groups on December 13th.
