Citizens’ Association “The Path of Justice” Banja Luka, founded by some human rights activists “Justice for David” in cooperation with the association“ Justice for David and all children of Bosnia and Herzegovina ”Vienna, Austria with the support of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) – For Social Democracy, organizes a series of Zoom public debates on the topic: OPEN ABOUT THE POLICE, PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE, JUDICIARY AND POLITICS! At each Zoom session the leading representatives of the institutions of the system covered by the topic of debate were invited. Besides them, an invitation was sent to everyone interested in public and political life.
After the successful holding of two debates, the third one follows on the topic: OPEN ABOUT JUDICIARY!
The establishment of an independent regulator in the field of justice was one of the most important steps in judicial reform created by the international community (OHR) after a comprehensive analysis of the functioning of the judiciary
system. The process began with the imposition of a law on three high-ranking judicial and prosecutorial councils, which functioned as a single body and in whose work international members also participated. The main goal was elimination of the powerful influence of politics on the selection of judicial office holders and the establishment of an independent judiciary.
The next step was to sign an agreement on the transfer of jurisdiction in the field of justice from the entities to the state and the establishment of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council. How functional were the described steps? How many co-procedures have been followed? How many users of this institution have exercised their rights in general will be just some of the questions on this Zoom Session. There is an open question of the corrective impact of the “Dragicevic” and “Memic” cases on work of judicial institutions?
The moderator of the session is the President of the Assembly of the Association of Citizens “The Path of Justice” Banja Luka: Marko Nikolic. The date of the event is April 24th, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. The link will be active several moments before the start of the session:
