Prime Minister Borissov Meets with EC First Vice President Timmermans to Discuss Judicial Reform

Prime Minister Boyko Borissov had a working meeting with the European Commission's First Vice President Frans Timmermans in the seaport of Varna Thursday to discuss the Bulgarian judicial reform and the measures taken by public institutions to make it irreversible, the Cabinet's Press Service reported. The meeting was also attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Roumyana Buchvarova and Justice Minister Hristo Ivanov.
Prime Minister Borissov recalled that a government-proposed Judicial Reform Strategy was approved by a large majority in the National Assembly (Parliament). A bill to amend the Constitution, which was submitted to the National Assembly a few days ago, also aims to ensure that the judicial system will keep reforming, he said.
A desire to improve the judicial system is visible in the system itself, which is working together with the government to create necessary legislation, Borissov said. He singled out the recent adoption of amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code, moved by Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov, which are aimed to prevent prosecuted persons from evading justice.
