In past years, the sector had applied measures to enhance its performance, adding that the four levels had supervised the settlement of civil, administrative, economic and labour cases as well as the execution of judgments in criminal and civil cases.
The sector had also detected and investigated cases of corruption in judicial activities, he said.
