Following the adoption of the Resolution CM/Res(2022)2 on the cessation of the membership of the Russian Federation to the Council of Europe, the Committee of Ministers decided, in the context of the procedure launched under Article 8 of the Statute of the Council of Europe, that the Russian Federation ceases to be a member of the Council of Europe, as from 16 March 2022.
It is with great sadness that the Secretariat of the CEPEJ has been informed of the passing of Mr Mongi Chalghoum (Tunisian magistrate, Président de Chambre, Cour de Cassation) on 24 May 2022. The CEPEJ has lost a precious professional partner, an expert, and a friend. Mr. Chalghoum was one of the first Tunisian magistrates to believe in, and enthusiastically implement, concrete and pragmatic cooperation between the Tunisian pilot courts and the CEPEJ. He has been an ardent promoter of CEPEJ tools in Tunisian courts. For these reasons, but also for his great kindness, he will not be forgotten by the CEPEJ.
The entire CEPEJ team would like to pay tribute to Mr. Chalghoum and offers its most sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
In setting up the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) at the end of 2002, at the initiative of the European ministers of Justice who met in London (2000), the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe wanted to establish an innovative body for improving the quality and efficiency of the European judicial systems and strengthening the court users’ confidence in such systems.
The CEPEJ develops concrete measures and tools aimed at policy makers and judicial practitioners in order to:
- Analyse the functioning of judicial systems and orientate public policies of justice
- Have a better knowledge of judicial timeframes and optimize judicial time management
- Promote the quality of the public service of justice
- Facilitate the implementation of European standrards in the field of justice
- Support member states in their reforms on court organisations
The CEPEJ also contributes with specific expertise to debates about the functioning of the justice system in order to provide a forum for discussion and proposals and bring the users closer to their justice system. (Read more)
