The EU co-ordinating office for Palestinian police support (EUPOL COPPS) last week organised a study trip for three Palestinian judges from the Judicial Inspection Department of the High Judicial Council, together with two Chief Prosecutors from the Attorney General’s Office, to meet their counterpart institutions in Romania.
During the four-day study visit, which ended on Friday, Palestinian Judges and Chief Prosecutors had the opportunity to exchange experiences in the area of judicial inspection.

Other areas of expertise were also discussed with colleagues from Romania, including disciplinary liability, professional evaluation and court/prosecution offices management control.

Besides visiting their counterparts in Bucharest, the Palestinian group visited courts and prosecution offices in Brasov and Cluj Napoca, allowing them to learn from practical experience in the area of the judicial inspection.
Last year, Romania and the Palestinian High Judicial Council signed a Memorandum of Understanding of cooperation in the field of inspection.
The support of EUPOL COPPS aims at empowering Palestinian justice sector institutions to perform their assigned roles and responsibilities effectively, and to enhance the accountability in the justice sector.
