Openness of Judicial Bodies in the Region and Montenegro

Openness of Judicial Bodies in the Region and Montenegro



The research has shown that the openness of courts and prosecutor’s offices in the region is not at a satisfactory level.

On average, courts meet 48% of performance indicators while prosecutor’s offices meet 40%.

Courts and prosecutor’s offices must have an independent position in a system of power in their work and they must respect basic principles: impartiality, accountability, efficiency and transparency.

We have identified several critical points in the work of judicial bodies in the region and all countries must pay a special attention to these points, towards the achievement of international standards.

In cooperation with partners from the regional network CSO “ActionSEE”, CDT prepared a policy paper, in which we analyze a level of transparency, openness and accountability of judiciary in the region of the Western Balkans.
