ON FUTURE COOPERATION BETWEEN SERBIAN AND GERMAN MINISTRIES OF JUSTICE1.02.2013.
Minister of Justice and Public Administration Nikola Selaković spoke late yesterday with State Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Germany Ms Birgit Grundmann about the development of the judiciary system and the assistance to the judiciary reform in Serbia by German organisations for international cooperation. They also talked on the results the Ministry of Justice and Public Administration had achieved so far, as well as about its plans for the future.
“Germany is keen on being a partner to Serbia in the development of its judicial and legal systems in the process of European integration, which has not been present so far on the agenda between the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Serbia and the Ministry of Justice of the Federal Republic of Germany”, said Minister Selaković, stating that Germany is more than ready to support the reinforcement of Serbian judicial institutions. “They have expressed great interest in the current state of our judiciary system and in all the activities of the Ministry of Justice and Public Administration aiming at offsetting negative effects of the judicial reform, which has been implemented in the past three years, but also at seeing that the current activities on improving such a situation are performed in a good and satisfactory manner”, Selaković added.
Minister Selaković said that German Ministry of Justice was also one of the organisers of the conference he attended in Berlin. “The conference was dedicated to regulatory reform, i.e. the reform of the legislative procedure that exists not only in Serbia, but also in other countries in transition”, Selaković stated. “With respect to that, in the meeting with Ms Grundmann, we have discussed the legislative activities in Serbia, and also all those legal acts that are presented before the members of the National Assembly by the Ministry of Justice and Public Administration”, the Minister concluded.
