Justice Reform and Anti-corruption Measures Discussed by Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița and Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice
Justice reform and anti-corruption measures were the subjects of a meeting that took place on Monday evening, September 27, in Brussels between Prime Minister Natalia Gavrilița and Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice.
“The reform of the justice sector is one of the main priorities of the Government. We will continue to work closely with the EU, as well as with the Council of Europe, including the Venice Commission, to ensure that all elements of the reform are in line with European standards,” said Natalia Gavrilița.
Prime Minister Gavrilița also said that the Moldovan government continues to rely on EU support for justice reform, which is also reflected in the next Moldova-EU association agenda, on which negotiations are nearing the end.
The Government note also states that during the meeting, Natalia Gavrilița also spoke about the actions that have already been taken or are to be taken in the context of justice reform – the strategy for ensuring the independence and integrity of the justice sector and the action plan in this area, amending the legislation on conflict of interest, checking judges and prosecutors.
At the end of the discussion, Natalia Gavrilița “reiterated the full openness, as a beneficiary of EU assistance, for cooperation with the European Prosecutor’s Office.”
At the same time, she invited Didier Reynders to visit Moldova to launch a high-level dialogue in the field of justice.
