The number of cases handled by the Supreme Court in 2015 was 6 per cent less than that in the previous year, according to the annual report of the Supreme Court.
 
The report also said the processing period of the cases was longer compared to that in 2014.
 
On an average, the Supreme Court took 23 months for such cases in 2015, compared to 21 months in 2014 and 20 months in 2013.
 
“One of the reasons for the longer processing times was the retirement [of judges] and the transfer of the president [of the court] to another job in the year under review,” Supreme Court President Timo Esko said.
 
The Supreme Court last year granted leave to appeal in 101 cases, which is only 4.7 per cent of the total number of case applications. 
 
The year before, there were 122 grants for appeals, said the annual report.
