Civil and criminal matters brought before the court are made by the organizations that are recognized by the court or between two persons and require payment of $100 US per day when convened. The court will only convene if justice can be delivered or a dispute cannot be resolved by other means. A court will only convene if there is ample evidence to prove the case. The burden of service and proof is upon the complainant or the victim. Anyone living within or doing business with a company within the special jurisdiction can file their case. Cases should be presented by a Piaroa speaking legal counsel and based on common law.
