GRECO President and Executive Secretary attend the Fundamental Rights Agency Forum (Vienna, 25-27 September 2018)

Corruption undermines trust in state institutions, and the judiciary is no exception. Question marks over the integrity of judges are particularly disturbing because of the far-reaching authority and powers given to judges to act on behalf of society as a whole. But such allegations can also be abused. What steps can be taken to prevent corruption within the judiciary? How should allegations of judicial corruption be dealt with? What can be done to avoid that the fight against corruption is used to undermine judicial independence? During one of the Open Sessions of the Forum, led by Christos Giakoumopoulos, the Council of Europe’s Human Rights and Rule of Law Director General, GRECO President, Marin Mrčela will provide insight and perspectives on these issues, together with a representative of the Consultative Council of European Judges (CCEJ). GRECO Executive Secretary will address the Forum later in the week, under Working Group 3 on “Boosting Trust in Institutions: a critical dialogue”.
