The progress in implementing judicial reforms has been acknowledged by the European Commissioner for Justice, Didier Reynders. This statement was made during the autumn session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in response to the intervention of the Vice President of the Parliament, Mihail Popșoi.
Didier Reynders also addressed the vetting of judges and prosecutors and the establishment of an anti-corruption court.
“The real issue is the need to act swiftly in the reform process in Moldova while ensuring full alignment with European standards. Therefore, it is essential to follow the recommendations of the Venice Commission. So, we are trying to maintain this balance. However, we are confident that Moldova is making very good progress, and we closely monitor it, with a strong emphasis on aligning with European standards,” added the European Commissioner for Justice.
