General inspections of the Justice Ministry and General Prosecutorís Office split

Liberali reports that the responsibilities and duties of the inspection units of the Ministry of Justice and the General Prosecutorís Office have been separated. According to the Ministry of Justice, the functions of the general inspection unit of the ministry have been rearranged, while a new general inspection department has been established at the Chief Prosecutor's Office.

"The general inspection unit of the Ministry of Justice is subordinate to the justice minister, while the general inspection unit of the Chief Prosecutorís Office is subordinate to the chief prosecutor." a statement on the ministryís website reads.

According to the changes, the general inspection unit of the Ministry of Justice verifies how effectively the staff of the ministry and its subordinated civil services follows the law. The ministryís general inspection unit also reveals conflicts of interests, controls implementation of the working ethic norms and budgetary/non-budgetary resources. The general inspection unit of the Chief Prosecutorís Office exercises the same duties towards its staff.
