Poroshenko: We open a new page in history of Ukrainian justice
Ukraine opens a new page in justice, President Petro Poroshenko has said.
"We open a new page in the history of justice in our country," he said during an oath taking ceremony by judges of the Supreme Court of Ukraine in Kyiv on Saturday.
Poroshenko said that due to the changes in the relevant legislation "European standards of legal proceedings" are being introduced in Ukraine.
According to him, the adopted law on changes in a number of procedural codes establishes other rules of the judicial process - "effective, fast and convenient for all its participants."
Poroshenko said that modernizing administrative court proceedings would simplify the protection of citizens in relations with the state.
"The rules and people are changed in the judiciary, and I want to welcome once again the members of the new Supreme Court - radically updated in comparison with the previous one," he said.
Poroshenko said that now Ukraine was an example for other countries in the field of justice: "Today Ukraine is already an example for other states in implementing standards and rights, transparency of competitive procedures, openness and public involvement."
More than a hundred judges of the updated Supreme Court of Ukraine took the oath on Saturday.
