The start of EU accession negotiations requires us to intensify the activities to strengthen the rule of law and legal security through reforms in the system and alignment of national legislation, Justice Minister Krenar Lloga said, who participated in a conference organized by the Faculty of Law at the South East European University (SEEU) in Tetovo.
Chapter 23 “Judiciary and fundamental rights” from the “Foundations” Cluster is key in the European integration process.
“We have the political will, but also the commitment to solve certain shortcomings in the field of justice, as well as the fight against organized crime and corruption. We have done a lot in terms of reforms in the justice system; digitization in the judiciary is underway, a new Strategy for the Reform of the Justice Sector 2023-2027 is being prepared. After almost three decades, most likely by the end of the year we will have a completely new Criminal Code, and the preparation of the first Civil Code is underway, in which the civil-legal matter will be codified in one act for the first time”, stressed Lloga.
