In jüngster Zeit sind im Justizsystem der Republik Moldau wieder Personen in Erscheinung getreten, die früher besonderen Interessen dienten. Auf diese Weise fragen sich die Bürger, ob sie der moldauischen Justiz vertrauen können, zitierte der Leiter der EU-Delegation in Moldawien Peter Michalko
Peter Michalko: Diejenigen, die Teil des Systems waren, als die Gerechtigkeit noch Einzelinteressen diente, tauchen wieder in Ämtern auf
According to the European official, a justice sector reform necessitates time and effort. At the same time, it is important to avoid regression as regards the credibility of justice and of those who work in the justice sector.
“I refer to cases when we see that those who were part of the system, when justice in the Republic of Moldova served particular interests, reappear in posts. Therefore, the citizens wonder if the justice sector can be credible as regards independent justice,” stated Peter Michalko.
According to the diplomat, the justice system should be reformed in a credible, transparent way with the involvement of experts, civil society, political parties and those who represent the judiciary.
“We should not witness the situation when the citizens see regression and when doubts that existed in the past about the independence of the judiciary, about the necessity for the people to feel equal before the law reappear. They should not be victims of corruption and should be sure that they are treated equally by the justice system, as the citizens should be treated in a democratic country,” said the EU Ambassador.
