Working together with judges on better application of the European Convention on Human Rights standards while adjudication of criminal cases

In co-operation with the High School of Justice, the Council of Europe and the European Union organised a two-day seminar to familiarise judges with the latest case-law of the Supreme Court of Georgia and the European Court of Human Rights related to domestic violence, admissibility of evidence, the right to liberty, pre-trial measures, trial preparation, and various aspects of fair trial standards. In addition, the participants discussed the main findings of review of Criminal Procedure Code and related legislation requiring legislative amendments developed by the Council of Europe expert.

The review serves as a comprehensive document for further improvement and aligning Georgia’s criminal procedure legislation with the best European standards.

The training  was organised under the EU/CoE joint Project "Supporting the criminal justice reforms - tackling criminal aspects of the judicial reforms in Georgia" within the framework of the Partnership for Good Governance programme.
