President of Kyrgyzstan threatens with dismissal for sabotaging judicial reform

«The responsibility of managers whose agencies sabotage the implementation of judicial and legal reform will be examined with all rigor,» the President of Kyrgyzstan Sooronbai Jeenbekov said today at a working meeting.

According to him, during a meeting of the Council for Judicial Reform in May 2018, the task of speedy implementation of judicial and legal reform was set and instructions to state bodies were given.

«The state will not be able to develop further without a judicial reform. According to Kyrgyzstanis, the most corrupt bodies are the courts and law enforcement agencies. We must radically change the situation. The people expect that judicial and legal reform will be implemented, we must meet the expectations and confidence of citizens. Unfortunately, some government agencies believe that the changes will not follow and everything will remain as before. This will not happen,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.

Do not wait for a quiet life until you fulfill all the tasks assigned to you.

Participants of the meeting discussed creation of a single register of crimes and misconduct, the probation system, the readiness of the judicial system to work in new conditions (installation of audio and video recording in courtrooms).

The low readiness of the State Penitentiary Service for the implementation of the probation system was noted.

Following the meeting, Sooronbai Jeenbekov instructed to speed up the creation of the single register of crimes and misconduct.

From January 1, 2019, all government agencies should begin work within the register.

At the end of the meeting, Sooronbai Jeenbekov once again reminded about the personal responsibility of the heads of ministries and departments for the implementation of judicial and legal reform.
