Prosecutors and judges further enhance their knowledge on the application of constraint measures

On 13 October 2021 a seminar on the procedure for the examination of motions on the application and extension of constraint measures was organized by the Council of Europe Project “Strengthening the human rights compliant criminal justice system in the Republic of Moldova” in cooperation with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) of Moldova.

 

The seminar brought together judges and prosecutors, who built their skills in applying and reasoning the concept of reasonable suspicion in the procedures for the application of pre-trial detention and house arrest. The participants updated their knowledge on the recent European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) standards and case-law related to Article 5 in the context of Covid-19 pandemic situation. 

 

Examples from Armenia and France and practical case studies on the procedure for the examination of motions on the application and extension of constraint measures were part of the seminar in which the participants could assess concrete situations and rules on the necessity to apply constraint measures and, especially the preventive arrest.

 

The seminar discussions were facilitated by the Council of Europe international consultants, Mr Davit Melkonyan and Mr Vincent Delbos.

 

The online seminar took place within the framework of the Council of Europe Project “Strengthening the human rights compliant criminal justice system in the Republic of Moldova”, which is part of the Council of Europe Action Plan for the Republic of Moldova for 2021-2024.
