Prime Minister Ion Chicu calls for active and constructive participation in the consultation process and the justice reform project finishing.
“We invite parliamentary and non-parliamentary political parties, representatives of civil society and professionals in the field of justice, all interested parties to participate in this process and provide the necessary assistance to reform justice in the Republic of Moldova,” the Prime Minister said, ipn.mdreports
In a Facebook post, Ion Chicu noted that as a result of discussions with an expert group of the Council of Europe that arrived to help Moldova reform justice, it was concluded that “the adoption and implementation of such a fundamental reform requires the wide participation of the whole society, and not just Government and Parliament.”
The Prime Minister believes that the justice reform project should be widely consulted with civil society, system professionals and with all political forces of the country, both in power and in the opposition. “Even the best legal document on justice reform will not have a great chance of success if the reform process is not inclusive, if it is not supported by responsible political forces and civil society,” he said.
Ion Chicu noted that he would appreciate the participation in the process of all our development partners, but especially representatives of the European Union and the United States of America.
Starting this week, the Ministry of Justice will hold consultations on the draft Strategy. “Justice reform is an absolute necessity for our country, but also the biggest challenge that the current Government faces. Personally, I don’t see any chance to change things for better in the Republic of Moldova if we fail to draw the line with disorder in the judiciary, the prosecutor’s office, the economic police and other state structures, ”Ion Chicu emphasized.
