The research has shown that the openness of courts and prosecutorâ€™s offices in the region is not at a satisfactory level.
On average, courts meet 48% of performance indicators while prosecutorâ€™s offices meet 40%.
Courts and prosecutorâ€™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 â€œActionSEEâ€, 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.
