Jagland's rep calls positive changes in Ukraine's judicial system

Positive changes in Ukraine's judicial system do not mean that the objective of judicial reform has been fully achieved.

Regis Brillat, Secretary General of the Council of Europe Thorbjorn Jagland's Special Adviser for Ukraine, said this during a conference "Judicial Reform in Ukraine: Achievements and Further Steps," which took place in Kyiv on the occasion of the second anniversary of judicial reform, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

According to him, after the changes to the Constitution of Ukraine in the area of justice and other laws were made two years ago, the Council of Europe sees positive changes in Ukraine's judicial system. However, in his opinion, this does not mean that the objective of judicial reform has been fully achieved. This means that Ukraine has already achieved significant progress and is ready to work in the same direction, he said.

Brillat also noted that one of the positive results of the judicial reform is a new Supreme Court.

He said that he followed the judgments of the newly created Supreme Court of Ukraine and that they were high-quality, well-founded and built on the principles of the rule of law. 

He also emphasized that during the implementation of judicial reform the indicators of success in the short term would be a greater number of fulfilled rulings of the European Court of Human Rights and a smaller number of lawsuits with this court and in the long term the increase of citizens' confidence in the judiciary.

Brillat also expressed his support for judicial reform in Ukraine and added that the Council of Europe would continue to work and provide support to Ukraine.
