Progress of criminal justice reform discussed in Bishkek

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Representatives from the President Office, parliament, the Supreme Court, law enforcement agencies, the government and civil society gathered in Bishkek on 17 June 2014 to discuss rule of law and judicial reforms in Kyrgyzstan.The public expert discussions of the new drafts of the key legislative acts will continue until 25 June and be followed by a Forum on the implementation of criminal justice and judicial reform in the country.

Three OSCE-supported international experts from Ukraine and Kazakhstan will contribute to the discussions.

These discussions followed a series of thematic roundtables co-organized by the OSCE Centre in Bishkek in April 2014 during which a wide range of stakeholders including law enforcement agencies and civil society reviewed the new draft laws.

The draft laws are expected to be passed on to parliament at the end of 2014 or beginning of 2015 after their finalization.

Presidential Decree #147 in 2012 launched a new phase in judicial and criminal justice reform in Kyrgyzstan by setting up a number of working groups tasked to draft a new Criminal Code, Criminal Procedure Code, Penal-Executive Code, Code on Offences, legislative acts on increasing the responsibility of judges, and legislative acts on bailiffs. An independent judiciary and the right to a fair trial are enshrined in the OSCE commitments, and the OSCE Centre, in line with its mandate, has been supporting the national authorities in this area.

The working groups consist of local academicians, lawyers, experts, civil society and law-enforcement representatives. These groups are supported by the OSCE Centre in Bishkek in close co-operation with such partners as the Regional Office of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Central Asia, the EU-UNDP new legal framework project, the German Society for International Co-operation, United Nations Office for Drug and Crime in Bishkek and the Soros Foundation.
