Unique Citizen File will link public registries and procedure offices in Cuba



Havana, Dec 1.- On December 10, resolution 484/20 will come into force in Cuba, issued by the Minister of Justice, Oscar Silvera Martínez, which establishes the organization, operation and scope of the Single Citizen File. 

This Tuesday the Ministry of Justice (MINJUS) published on Twitter that the Citizen's Single File is the computer platform that allows interoperability between public registries, and of these with the organizations and institutions that provide services and procedures to entities and citizens.

It facilitates legal services, procedures, access to information, and contributes to the creation of digital identity in the country, MINJUS assured in its official profile on that social network.

Resolution 484/20, published in the Official Gazette of the Republic, Extraordinary No. 67/11/20, establishes that public officials and authorities in the full exercise of their functions will verify the identity of the people and collect their personal data from a single source.

In accordance with the norm, this access to the public identity data of natural persons will be done with the legal guarantees, integrity and protection of the information essential for the preservation of the data collected on that computer platform.

This File constitutes a step forward in the MINJUS's purpose of providing a quality legal service, since it will depend on those who, in possession of a legitimate right, will have the facility for the system units to access the necessary data to the processing of a matter by that faster route, points out the agency on its website.

He adds that in the midst of the computerization process developed by the country in recent times, it will facilitate the implementation of government and electronic commerce, prioritizing in this first stage those institutions and organizations that most affect the procedures for the population.

The MINJUS recalls that since the end of 2019 the Minister of Justice has issued a group of instructions and resolutions aimed at unblocking procedures and facilitating access to the population to the institution's legal services with more quality and efficiency; the implementation of the card and its forthcoming entry into force is another step towards achieving that goal, he concludes. (ACN) (Photo: File)
