Statement on the Fourth Wave of Judicial Reform (June 13)

The U.S. Embassy and the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia welcome the final draft legislation on the “fourth wave” of judicial reforms as a result of a broad consensus achieved in the working group composed of different actors, including the international community, civil society, and the judicial sector. In our view, the draft incorporates our key recommendations, based on best international practices, that aim to create greater transparency, accountability and independence in Georgia’s judiciary.  We look forward to Parliament passing this legislation and to the judicial institutions implementing it, and we stand ready to assist with the implementation and further reforms.
