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.
