DEAR PROSECUTORS, FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS,

In May 2014 the Program for the Development of the Judicial System (PDJS) Association in partnership with the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Bulgaria began implementation of the “Civil Oversight of the Capacity of the Prosecutor’s Office to Investigate Corruption Crimes” project. It is supported by the NGO Programme in Bulgaria under the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area with the purpose of carrying out an in depth dedicated analysis of corruption practices in order to improve the organisational development of the Bulgarian Prosecutor’s Office. Preliminary analysis indicates that enhancement in the quality of the work process and ensuring faster and more effective prosecution of corruption crimes requires targeted efforts in two main areas: oversight and analysis of the procedural rules governing the mechanisms for processing corruption signals and corruption cases within the Prosecutor’s Offices; and increasing awareness among citizens, who submit signals for corruption practices. виж още
