კოალიცია მოუწოდებს ხელისუფლებას მთავარი პროკურორის არჩევა ახალი, რეფორმირებული წესით მოხდეს
ბოლო დროს ქვეყანაში მიმდინარე მოვლენებმა, კიდევ ერთხელ ცხადყო, რომ პროკურატურის და საგამოძიებო სისტემის მოქმედი მოდელი ვერ პასუხობს დამოუკიდებლობის, მიუკერძოებლობის და პროფესიონალიზმის მიმართულებით არსებულ გამოწვევებს და ძირეულ რეფორმას საჭიროებს.

Expanding Mikheil Chinchaladze’s Authority Endangers Random Selection Principle for Court Cases
The Coalition for an Independent and Transparent Judiciary is concerned by the April 30 decision of the High Council of Justice that established narrow specializations for judges at Tbilisi Appeals Court and gave the unilateral power over appointing judges to these specializations to the Chair of the Court, Mikheil Chinchaladze. Despite the fact that the legislation does not specifically give such authority to Court Chairs, since 2006 the Tbilisi City Court has had the flawed practice of the Chairs appointing judges to specializations. This creates significant risks because of the Chairs’ influence on the case allocation process.

The Coalition Responds to the Initiative on Closing the High Council of Justice Sessions to Public
At the March 26 session of the High Council of Justice (HCOJ), judge-member Sergo Metopishvili announced that he plans to put forward an initiative for closing the HCOJ sessions to the public on the official agenda. We believe the judge-member’s initiative contradicts both the law and the principles of democratic governance. Such initiatives can only be damaging to the transparency of the HCOJ’s work, the possibility of voicing dissent at the HCOJ, and the reputation of the judiciary.
