Judiciary in the fight against corruption 2012/2013

The reform of the judiciary in Serbia was implemented mainly through the process of reorganization of courts and the network of prosecutors as well as the election of judges and prosecutors in 2009. The reform continued through the process of adopting legal solutions. Some aspects of it have caused controversy and debate that are still ongoing. The lack of transparency in the re-election process led to a decrease in citizens' trust in the judiciary, which was one of the goals of the reforms. Partial assessments by prosecutors and courts dealing with corruption cases show that procedures take too long, compared to similar countries, usually below the legal minimum, with very few high-corruption cases being processed. Of particular concern is the fact that there is a huge difference between the number of corruption cases faced by citizens on the basis of research and processed cases, cases where corruption is not prosecuted years after its detection and almost complete impunity for violations of anti-corruption laws in misdemeanor proceedings. budget system, financing of political parties).

The project will monitor and evaluate the results of the Serbian judiciary in the fight against corruption and the overall implementation of anti-corruption laws. The project is directly linked to the judicial reform implemented under the 2009 Judicial Reform Strategy, the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (a new one is expected to be adopted in 2012, while the existing one is in force since 2005), and indirectly to achievements in the field of European integration of the Republic of Serbia and fulfillment of political and public sector criteria from Copenhagen. Also, based on the assessment and monitoring, the project will identify system weaknesses and propose activities to overcome these weaknesses. As part of the advocacy activities, the project will try to draw the attention of stakeholders to ensure the adoption of recommendations and ensure the improvement of the system.

The project is being implemented in cooperation with the Association of Judges of Serbia

The project is supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway in Belgrade
