To Increase Independence, Accountability, Transparency and Efficiency of New Institutions of the Government and Justice, funded by Save the Children
Guided by the AHC’s mission, our initiative will consist in monitoring the establishment, organization and functioning of the new institutions of justice system governance, and in particular the two Councils, the High Judicial one as well as that of the Prosecutor’s Office. The focus of AHC’s initiative will be transparency vis-à-vis the public, accountability, efficiency, the quality of decision-making of these collegial bodies, especially the exercise of their competences regarding the status and career of judges and prosecutors.
Findings and conclusions from the AHC’s monitoring will be made available to the relevant justice institutions as well as to the international assistance missions in Albania. In accordance with their importance, they will be periodically communicated to the media and the public so that this process will be transparent in the eyes of citizens, seeking to regain lost trust in the independent justice bodies.
