Cazanciuc on the purpose of the legal system strategy during 2015 – 2020

The strategy of development of the legal system for 2015 – 2020 has the final purpose to increase the efficiency of the system, so that it could offer fast, predictable and fair solutions that could lead to an increase in the citizens’ trust in justice, Justice Minister Robert Cazanciuc declared at the end of last week.
The document was launched for public debate on Friday at the Ministry of Justice, based on a series of recommendations made by the World Bank experts. For the elaboration of the strategy, the institution had demanded the counselling of CSM, ICCJ, DNA and DIICOT.
“The strategy we are about to launch this Friday in public debates reunites the two aspects we intend to focus our attention on for the five years to come: the development of the legal system by consolidation of the institutions and direct investments in the infrastructure. On the other hand, the strategy reflects recommendations made by the World Bank group of experts who have issued the report entitled “A Functional Analysis of Justice Department in Romania”, the Justice Minister declared.
Robert Cazanciuc also added that the document would reach a final form after discussions and public counselling to come.
“Obviously, all this system is based on the fundamental principles of the constitutional state, the independence of magistrates, fighting against corruption by consolidating the institutions and on measures of prevention and education of the audience. It is a document supported by European partners as well, positively mentioned in the European Commission’s latest Evaluation Report”, the Justice Minister also explained.
According to a press release issued by the Ministry of Justice, the strategy was conceived by the experts of the institution and includes the main objectives for the development of the legal system during 2015 – 2020. Throughout the writing process, during this year, the authors sought counselling from institutions such as the Supreme Court of Magistrates (CSM), the High Court of Cassation and Justice (ICCJ), the Prosecutors’ Office of the High Court of Cassation and Justice (PICCJ), the National Anticorruption Department (DNA) the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT), the National Administration of Penitentiaries (ANP) and the National Office of Commerce Registry (ONRC).
Moreover, the authors sought the advice of the National Union of Public Notaries in Romania, the National Union of Bars in Romania, the National Union of Officers of the Court and the Mediation Council.
The Ministry of Justice also announced public debates for the mentioned strategy in October, due to be attended by representatives of magistrates’ associations, of civil society and of the academic environment.
