The Issue of Vetting Judges Cannot Be Overlooked, as It Aligns with the Georgian People's Aspiration to Enhance the Judiciary and Join the European Union

Statement of 47 Georgian non-governmental organizations: The issue of Vetting Judges cannot be overlooked, as it aligns with the Georgian people's aspiration to enhance the judiciary and join the European Union.

The vetting of the Georgian judiciary will remain relevant to society until the goals of establishing an independent judical system and achieving Georgia's EU accession are accomplished.

Georgian Civil Society Organizations call on actions to the authorities to acknowledge the existing challenges in the judicial system and take tangible steps towards fulfilling the conditions outlined in the European Commission's nine-step plan.
