EU and High Council of Justice ensure safe courts in Ukraine during COVID-19

The European Union Advisory Mission (EUAM) and Ukraine’s High Council of Justice have presented recommendations on the safe operation of courts in Ukraine during quarantine restrictions.

The document consists of 33 provisions and provides recommendations on access to justice under the quarantine, on organising a workflow in new conditions, and anti-epidemic measures at the workplace. It will help to create a balance between the right to access to justice, the right to have one’s case heard without undue delay, and the right of those working within the wider judicial system not to be exposed to health risks.

The recommendations will be implemented in up to 700 courts in Ukraine and affect the daily work of 5,400 judges and 25,000 court staff, as well as thousands of lawyers, prosecutors and employees of the Court Security Service.
