№2630 Draft law on amendments to some laws of Ukraine (regarding financial security of the judiciary)

The aim of a draft law

The draft law provides that salary of judges is defined not by law, but by the governmental resolution. It does not meet the European standards which state that the salary of judges shall be determined by law and makes the judiciary branch dependent on the executive one. Members of the High Council of Justice would work not as professional employees, but as public service workers, and therefore would depend on employers (Government) (it was criticized at the European Court of Human Rights in the case “Oleksandr Volkov vs. Ukraine”).
