"On Friday 12 June, the three judges of the High Court, Judge Sokol Sadushi, Judge Ervin Pupe and Judge Ilir Panda, met with a delegation of EURALIUS V, consisting of Mrs Agnes Berhard, Teamleader, and Mr Herman von Hebel, International Expert and Deputy Teamleader, in the premises of the High Court.
In view of COVID – 19 pandemics, EURALIUS in cooperation with the High Judicial Council, is assisting the courts with the implementation of videoconferencing tools with the aim to reduce the physical presence of litigants, lawyers, and court staff.
On 15 and 16 October 2019, EURALIUS organized a workshop on the 5-year strategic plan of the High Prosecutorial Council (HPC). The training took place in Vlora and was attended by nine HPC members, the Chief of Cabinet and three legal advisors, who participated extensively in discussions.
Earlier this year, EURALIUS had organised another workshop on the same topic, where the mission, vision and core values were discussed and defined by the HPC members.
During the event, EURALIUS experts delivered presentations on the main components of the strategy, while the HPC members and staff discussed the content of the expected results, objectives, indicators and targets. HPC members and staff also discussed a risk management matrix regarding the realization of the strategy, and the content of a quarterly action plan for the year 2020.
The outcome of the workshop will be a revised version of the strategy that will be submitted to the HPC for further elaboration, revision–including through incorporation of the input from the main stakeholders following a public consultation–and final adoption of the strategic plan in the coming months.
