Chisinau, 22 April /MOLDPRES/ - The Council of Europe has launched two projects to continue backing the reforms in the criminal justice sector of Moldova. The documents were presented to the principal beneficiary institutions of Moldova today.
It is about, Strengthening the prison and probation reforms, provision of health care and the treatment of patients in closed institutions in the Republic of Moldova (SPPRH project) with a duration of 36 months and Strengthening the human rights compliant criminal justice system in the Republic of Moldova (SHRCCJ Project), with a duration of 30 months. Both projects are financed through the Council of Europe Action Plan for the Republic of Moldova (2021-2024) and a transversal coordination between them will be ensured during implementation.
‘’The necessity to accelerate the reforms in the criminal justice field in the Republic of Moldova is supported by the findings and recommendations of the Council of Europe monitoring statutory and treaty bodies, as well as by the shortcomings revealed by the European Court on Human Rights,’’ Head of the Council of Europe Office in Chisinau William Massolin said.
Both projects are interconnected and represent a comprehensive approach in the settlement of the key problems related to the criminal justice in Moldova.
Both Projects will contribute to further strengthening the criminal justice system in the country, which is also grounded in the analysis of the findings and recommendations of the Council of Europe monitoring bodies, European Committee for the Prevention of Torture (CPT), as well as by judgements of the European Court of Human Rights issued with respect to the Republic of Moldova.
