Amendments, proposed by the draft law again push the reform towards the fiasco. The fate of the results of the reform will end up in the hands of the interested parties, which should be reformed as it already happened in the past. The experience of last years showed that such an approach is ineffective. The obligation to cleanse the HCJ, taken by the government and laid out in the Memorandum with IFM, was also excluded from the text of the draft law.
The Parliament has all the possibility to eliminate all the flaws of the draft law by initiating wider discussion and further improvement by the experts, representatives of our international partners and civil society. Main efforts should be directed to depriving the HCJ of the crucial influence on the HQCJ competition and establishment of an effective mechanism of cleansing the HCJ.
