This is especially important for Turkmenistan in the period of large-scale implementation of legal reforms," the Ambassador, Head of the OSCE Centre in Ashgabat Arsim Zekolli said.
Leonid Golovko, a professor from the Moscow State University, who participant in a workshop, said, "We should not underestimate the technical aspects of the rule of law mechanisms. Only the lawyers who know and understand the functional structure of the modern criminal procedure will be able to implement international standards into their national legal system."
