The Superior Council of Magistrates (CSM) asked the Ministry of Justice to communicate how it answered to the request made by the European Commission in 2012 regarding a certain topic having to do with high level corruption files.
On the occasion of its plenary sitting on Tuesday, CSM took several decisions regarding “problems of a major public interest concerning justice independence.”
“Sending a notification to the Ministry of Justice to communicate information to the Superior Council of Magistrates how it answered to the European Commission on 10.10.2012, item 20 of the appendix, and also the method used in collecting the data, considering the potential this matter has of affecting the independence of the courts responsible for solving such cases,” is one of the decisions taken by the CSM.
