The EC report objectively reflects the efforts of all the institutions to reform the judiciary.
This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ekaterina Zakharieva after the European Commission announced earlier on our state monitoring report.
Zaharieva noted that for the first time, three out of six indicators are considered to be temporary. As already explained, it is believed that the three indicators – the independence of the judiciary, the rule of law and organized crime – are being stopped.
In her view, the report shows that Bulgaria can complete the mechanism until the end of the mandate of this commission.
The European Commission report is positive, objectively and explicitly emphasizes the irreversibility of the reforms implemented. This was said by Minister of Justice Tsetska Tsacheva in connection with the European Commission's report on the cooperation and verification mechanism.
The EC has discontinued part of Bulgaria's observations
Bulgaria appreciates the belief that our country can complete the monitoring until the end of the mandate of this commission, said Cacheva, and noted that the government is continuing its efforts.
In turn, Minister of the Interior Mladen Marinov also confirmed what Tsetska Tsacheva and formerly Ekaterina Zaharieva said. He stated that, as an objective assessment, he had adopted the EC report on organized crime reducing the 6th rate.
