The Supreme Court approved on Monday the establishment of a judicial training school in Cyprus that will focus on judicial reforms.
According to the plans, the school is expected to start organizing its first educational programs in early 2018. Until then, the necessary legal framework will be put in place.
Meanwhile, a delegation from the Cyprus Supreme Court visited Russia last week for talks with Vyacheslav Lebedev, President of the Supreme Court of Russia.
The Cyprus delegation was headed by Myronas M. Nicolatos and included Leonidas Parparinos, Michalakis Christodoulou and Antonis Liatsos.
The two countries confirmed their commitment to the principles advocated by the Council of Europe, democracy, human rights and the state of justice, as well as the need to ensure the independence of the judiciary.
The Cypriot side said that Russian citizens are fully respected in Cyprus courts and the right to equal treatment is fully guaranteed.
