ata_maliTIRANA – The third phase of judicial reform in Albania includes a series of discussions of more than 20 draft laws as part of proposed overhaul of the country’s justice system.

Chairman of the  ‘ad hoc’ Parliamentary commission on judicial reform Fatmir Xhafaj told reporters on Wednesday that draft laws, which will be considered during the deliberations of the relevant parliamentary commissions in December, are an important part of the justice system reform and some of them may require a process of consultation with professionals, judges and the prosecutors.

The judicial system package includes amendments to legislation on organization and function of the judiciary, the judges’ status, National Judicial Conference and the law on the Justice Ministry.

The legal package ‘Criminal Justice’ envisages amendments to the Law on Prosecution and High Prosecutors Council; Law “On the Judicial Police,” “Penitentiary Police” and amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code.
