Report on the independence and impartiality of the prosecution services in the Council of Europe member States in 2017

The report of the Bureau of the Consultative Council of European Prosecutors (CCPE) has just been published. The report has been prepared following the proposal of the Secretary General of the Council of Europe to ”develop the methodology and establish a regular in-house evaluation mechanism on the independence and impartiality of the judiciaries of the Council of Europe member States”. This report highlights concerns about and challenges to the functioning of the prosecution services in States governed by the rule of law in 2017, on the basis of information submitted by CCPE members and observers, as well as by prosecutorial bodies and associations. The report is also based on information contained in the judgments of the European Court of Human Rights, opinions of the Venice Commission, reports of the Human Rights Commissioner and of the Parliamentary Assembly, and documents of other relevant bodies of the Council of Europe. The report is published together with comments made by member States, appended.
