NGOs leave working group set up for selection of judges

NGOs leave a working group set up for the selection of judges. More than 30 NGOs are united in the "Judicial System Reform" working group.

Members of the "Coalition for Independent and Transparent Judiciary" say that the existing composition is unacceptable for them, and they do not intend to continue their work.

The Third sector representatives say that the group"s goal is not a real reform of the judiciary.

A request of members of NGO sector remains unchanged They demand the resignation of all eleven members of the High Council of Justice, who supported a ten-member list of lifetime judges.
