“Montenegro needs independent, impartial, effective & competent judicial institutions to move forward on its EU path. There is no way around it,” shared Oana Cristina Popa, the EU Ambassador to Montenegro.
“The European Union calls upon all Montenegro’s political actors to act beyond party lines & to ensure broad support for appointment of Judicial Council members, Constitutional Court judges & Supreme State Prosecutor without further delay.”
“Lack of these long-pending appointments has a worrying impact on the overall functioning of Montenegro judiciary & ultimately on its capacity to deliver justice. Too much time is lost on divisive topics. Now is the time to put differences aside & work together to reinforce rule of law.”
“The EU will continue to do all it can to assist Montenegro & speed up its pace of negotiations, in the interest of Montenegro citizens & country’s European future. Montenegro should seize this momentum resolutely and deliver immediate and concrete results.” shared the EU Ambassador to Montenegro Oana Cristina Popa on her Twitter account.
