REFORMING SERBIA : VLADIMIR CVIJAN
Judicial reform carried out by the former regime suffered a complete fiasco. It is not only opinion from the SNS, but also from national and international experts. Confirmation of this is the fact that the Constitutional Court returned almost all of unelected judges to work and it is said that their elimination was politically motivated. We expect, but during the regular session of the National Assembly also to be approved legislation that would establish a new network to ensure the independence of the courts and their work.
How much is Serbian judiciary independent in its work?
Inherited completely disoriented and frightened judiciary. The former regime is using all forms of pressure would reduce the reputation of the lowest branch. The last statement of minister Selakovic - he does not want to dismiss prosecutor Miljko Radisavljevic though the public is very dissatisfied with his work, is the only real evidence of SNS policy direction in this area.
How Parliament passed legislations could improve the judiciary?
As I said - but in the regular session of the Assembly we will adopt a set of laws that will be an advance in this field. Particularly new law on the new network of courts, laws and procedural changes to the law on amnesty.
How SNS sees the problem of controversial privatization?
Privatization must be tested in accordance with the law and the obligations undertaken by the EU. Here, in the first place, I check all the irregularities in the privatization of company "Mobtel".
How to improve the cooperation between Serbia and the United States in the field of justice?
As President of the National Assembly Committee for Constitutional Affairs and Legislation i want to emphasize the excellent cooperation with U.S. representatives and experts who are helping us a lot to work on reforms of national legislation. I will do all to see that cooperation is at an even higher level.
