Tbilisi, Georgia, Dec.18
By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:
Georgian Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili instructed the Justice Minister Tea Tsulukiani to establish a working group on the institutional reformation of the prosecutor's office in order to increase the effectiveness of its work.
Garibashvili said at a government session Dec.18 that it was one of the campaign promises of the ruling coalition Georgian Dream.
"The most important is to establish institutionally balanced model, where prosecutors' neutrality will be institutionally guaranteed and the principle of accountability protected," he said.
"Prosecutor should be even more independent, but the issue of accountability should be clearly defined," the prime minister said, adding that non-governmental organizations should be involved in the process of elaboration of reform.
"Our main goal is to establish prosecutor's office as an efficient mechanism for fighting against crime, to strengthen it, and at the same time, the prosecutor's office should serve the principle of rule of law," Garibashvili also said.
The prime minister said that the reforms should affect all state agencies.
