PACS-Serbia - Strengthening the capacities of law enforcement and judiciary in the fight against corruption in Serbia

 


In recent years, Serbian authorities undertook a number of important steps in the fight against corruption, including the ratification of key Council of Europe legal instruments in this field - Criminal and Civil Law Conventions against Corruption, as well as the Additional Protocol to the Criminal Law Convention. Despite the reforms undertaken, corruption remains a serious concern for the people of Serbia. The Serbian authorities have acknowledged that corruption is a priority issue that requires comprehensive and serious countermeasures. This includes adequate responses to various challenges in investigating, prosecuting and adjudicating corruption and white collar crime. With the above in mind, the Council of Europe and the European Union have launched, in December 2012, a joint project “Strengthening the Capacities of Law Enforcement and Judiciary in the Fight against Corruption in Serbia” (PACS). With duration of 28 months, the project will encompass specialised training designed for the judiciary, prosecution and law enforcement officers; introduce new IT tools to investigate corruption and white collar crime; and will conduct risk analyses and provide recommendations aimed at improving the efficiency of criminal investigations and proceedings.
