Two-day training for trainers on “Use of electronic evidence in adjudication of corruption offences” will take place on 13-14 December 2018 at the National School of Judges (NSJ), in Kyiv, Ukraine. The training will bring together some 20 judges, representing Kyiv and five regional branches of the NSJ in Dnipropetrovsk, Chernyvtsy, Kharkiv, Lviv, and Odesa oblasts.
The training aims at increasing the level of training skills of judges, and improving their understanding on the peculiarities of electronic evidence and building practical skills on the use and admissibility of such evidence in adjudication of corruption offences.
The training curriculum and materials for this course were developed by the Council of Europe international and national experts in close cooperation with the NSJ working group members. The course will become part of the system of compulsory regular education of judges implemented by the National School of Judges of Ukraine, thus contributing to strengthening the overall capacity of Ukrainian judiciary to adjudicate corruption offences.
This activity is organised as part of the European Union/Council of Europe Partnership for Good Governance Project ‘Fight against Corruption in Ukraine,’ implemented since January 2015.
