Skopje, 17 July 2017 (MIA) - Judges of Skopje-based Criminal Court held talks Monday with the Senior Experts' Group on systemic rule of law issues, led by Reinhard Priebe.

The judges notified the need on their more active inclusion in the process of drafting the rules on matters related to financing the judiciary, appointment, career advancement of judges, performance criteria, etc.
