The United States supports the continuation of justice reform in Georgia. Such a statement made the US Ambassador to Georgia.
“The United States has been very proud to be part of helping Georgia develop its judicial system over many, many years. What we have advocated is to continue that reform work. There is a clear roadmap that has already been discussed and negotiated by Georgia’s leaders and here, by the members of the judiciary. It’s based on recommendations from the Venice commission, from ODIHR, from international and domestic legal experts.
It’s important, I think, to note that Parliament asked the Venice Commission and ODIHR and international experts for these recommendations; these were provided at parliament’s request. So it’s quite clear in many instances what further reforms are needed as part of a continuing process to strengthen Georgia’s judicial system, to ensure that the citizens of Georgia can have confidence in their judicial system and can have a timely professional, impartial administration of justice. That’s what we’re all striving here for, and I sincerely hope that reforms will be underway very soon”, - said Kelly Degnan.
