At its meeting on 12 March, the Judicial Council adopted a resolution on the dialogue between the executive and the judiciary on judicial training, which explains that the public statement made by the Minister of Justice stating that the Chair of the Judicial Council is hindering the establishment of a judicial training institution is untrue. Taking over the training of judges from the executive has been identified as a priority strategic goal of the judiciary. The Judicial Council, under the management of the Chair, is actively working on the new judicial training system.

The Judicial Council calls on the Minister of Justice to continue the dialogue with the Judicial Council, observing the principles of professional discussion and to refrain from using the judiciary in his own political interests.
