Source: Council of Europe
At its meeting of 29 January 2016, the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted Resolution n.2098 which calls upon all member states to implement, fully and in due time, all relevant recommendations of bodies and monitoring mechanisms of the Council of Europe, with particular attention to the guidelines and reports adopted by the CEPEJ through its work on the evaluation of judicial systems.
The sections of the CEPEJ report specifically dedicated to judges and to the status and careers of judges and prosecutors are identified by PACE as a valuable source of inspiration on how to preserve or reinforce the independence and impartiality of judges, to avoid corruption and to give more social recognition to the professions.
