The new laws on the recruitment, training of and disciplinary action against judges and on court management have been criticised by the Judicial Service Commission; a wide-ranging consultation is currently under way with a view to revising them. The Minister of Justice has set up a 10-member commission (including Mr de Santis) to improve the efficiency of justice: the entire works of the CEPEJ have been forwarded to it.
