Languages of publication
Pass nearly two years since the act from 9 October 2009 when introduced the separation of functions the Attorney General and Minister of Justice. In opinion of the author is time to put the question of how to assess the reform of the Prosecutor Office: whether Prosecution Office after splitting with the Department Of Justice has become an institution independent and resistant to political pressures, and how Prosecution Office works under the new Attorney General (judge), and whether the Prosecutor Office actually became an institution fully independent and free from political pressure? The author shows a good part of this reform, but also indicates the poor and poorly thought out regulations. She wonders what should be the model for future Prosecutors Office. She believes that the Prosecutor Office should have the statute of a public authority. It should also be clearly set out in the Constitution what is the nature of relations with the Parliament, indicating that the Attorney General shall annually present the information on the activities of prosecutors, such as the Ombudsman. The author postulates directions of changes that make the Prosecution will be more independent to executive power. She recognizes the need to put the Prosecution in the Constitution. The article concludes with look at the statistics from the first report of PG after the separation of functions and its assessment.
