On 15 April 2019, the judiciary and members of the High Council of Justice of Georgia were introduced to Council of Europe standards and national best practices on confidential counselling for judges, during a meeting organised within the framework of the Accountability Working Group 2017-2021 Judicial Strategy.

The meeting was opened by Mr Cristian Urse, Head of the Council of Europe Office in Georgia, and Mr Giorgi Mikautadze, Secretary of the High Council of Justice.

This initiative follows the recommendations of the Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) in its 4th round of evaluation for Georgia to introduce a mechanism of confidential counselling for judges in order to help judges combat corrupt practices within the judiciary.

The event was supported by the Council of Europe project “Support to the Judicial Reform in Georgia” funded by the voluntary contributions of Bulgaria, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Latvia, Norway, the Slovak Republic and Sweden to support the implementation of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Georgia 2016-2019.
