Justice Minister Tsacheva: EC's Goals for Bulgaria Are Attainable

Bulgaria's Justice Minister Tsetska Tsacheva commented that the lifting of the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM) depends on Bulgaria's track record in implementing the European Commission's recommendations. "The goals are attainable, we are expected to deliver results," Tsacheva told Bulgarian reporters in Brussels where she met with EC Vice-President Frans Timmermans and European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Vera Jourova.
The CVM, introduced when Bulgaria joined the EU in 2007, encourages and monitors progress in the judicial reform and the fight against corruption and organized crime.
Tsacheva explained that a report drawn up by the Justice Ministry had identified progress in meeting the requirements. "The report has convinced me that the December deadline [for measures planned for 2017] will be met. However, there are measures scheduled for the whole of 2018," said Tsacheva.
