Today, on 8 June, representatives of the Ministry of Justice and Minister’s Office from Macedonia visited the Supreme Court to exchange experience. During the meeting, Macedonian representatives acquired more extensive information about organisation of work of the Supreme Court, and on work and topical issues in the Council for the Judiciary.  

Macedonian representatives were particularly interested in issues related to selection and assessment of judges, and qualification requirements.  In presentation on issues related to the Council for the Judiciary, guests appreciated information on practical organisation of sittings (live broadcasts available to all Latvian judges) and financing (administrative capacity, extras to judges) of the Council for the Judiciary.

Meeting was conducted by Anita Zikmane, the Head of the Division of Case-law and Research, and Dace Sulmane, Adviser on issues related to the Council for the Judiciary.

Three-day visit of Macedonian representatives to Latvia has been organised within framework of Twinning project “Strengthening of Rule of Law” financed by the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance.
