Constitutional Experts Visit Bulgaria
The visit, which began on 7 November, follows a request made last July by the Parliament of Bulgaria for a Venice Commission opinion on the new draft law on judicial power and amendments to the Criminal Procedure Code of Bulgaria.
The Bulgarian authorities are considering legal changes as part of the fight against organised crime and corruption, raised by the reports of the European Commission under the Co-operation and Verification Mechanism.
The opinion will be adopted at the commission’s December session in Venice, Italy.
