The Government had a meeting dedicated to the Justice Reform Strategy. The meeting was attended by US Ambassador Dereck J. Hogan, EU Ambassador to Chișinău, Peter Michalko, Justice Minister Fadei Nagacevschi, and Presidential Justice Adviser Olesea Stamate.
The discussions aimed at the Justice Reform Strategy that is to be promulgated by the presidential institutions. They discussed also the consolidation of inter-institutional cooperation in order to ensure an efficient activity in all fields.
The interim head of the Government stated that the reforms started in all sectors of activity, but especially in the judiciary, must continue regardless of the political changes that are taking place in our country. Aureliu Ciocoi urged his colleagues to make every effort for the state institutions to function normally and to take necessary actions without delay.
“We have no time to wait for a day when we will have political stability. I urge you not to search for excuses, but to work together and see what we can do even in this complicated period. I am sure that we can create the necessary conditions for the Justice Reform Strategy to be successfully implemented”, said Aureliu Ciocoi.
The ambassadors present at the talks also stressed the importance to continue judiciary reform, regardless of the political circumstances As a priority, they proposed focusing on two key points: strengthening cooperation between institutions and implementing the provisions set out in the Justice Reform Strategy, which can be implemented even under the conditions of an Interim Government.
The strategy aims to overcome the challenges of improving the justice sector and demonstrates the state’s commitment to ensure an independent, impartial, accountable and efficient justice sector.
