CVM Report: Bulgaria Meets Commitments Made upon EU Accession for Reforming Judiciary and Fighting Organized Crime and Corruption

October 22 (BTA) - Releasing Tuesday the latest report on Bulgaria's efforts to reform the judiciary and fight organized crime and corruption, the European Commission said the country's progress is sufficient to meet the commitments made upon its accession to the EU. Issued under what is known as the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), the report is expected to be the last in this format. The Commission says that Bulgaria will need to monitor the continued implementation of the reform with a newly-established post-monitoring council, which will be co-chaired by a deputy Prime Minister in charge of judicial reform and the representative member of the Supreme Judicial Council. That will feed into the future dialogue with the Commission in the framework of the comprehensive rule of law mechanism.
