06.02.2024 270

The Senate deputies discussed the issues of reforming and improving the judicial system today at a round table meeting on the topic "On the implementation of the principles of competition and equality of the parties in criminal and civil proceedings."

In his welcoming speech, Chairman of the Committee Nurlan Beknazarov noted that it is impossible to achieve a Fair Kazakhstan without an independent, open and effective judicial system.

"The Head of State stressed that an important criterion of a state governed by the rule of law is impartial and fair justice. The court should be adversarial, and the judge should be free from the prosecution. To do this, it is necessary to ensure the equality of the lawyer and the prosecutor. Thus, one of the most important requirements for the fairness of judicial proceedings is its implementation on the basis of the principles of competition and full legal equality of the parties. Competitiveness is a truly democratic principle, inherent in the right to protection, guaranteeing its implementation and the discovery of the truth," Nurlan Beknazarov said.

In turn, Senator Ainur Argynbekova stressed that the Chamber now faces great challenges in further reforming the judicial system.

"Our country must ensure respect for human rights and legitimate interests. To do this, it is necessary to continue to develop the principle of competition and equality of the parties by maximizing citizens' access to justice, as well as to eliminate the accusatory bias," the deputy said.

In addition, representatives of the Supreme Court, the Prosecutor General's Office, the Institute of Parliamentarism, the Republican Bar Association and others also made their reports.

At the end of the round table, Senator Nurlan Beknazarov noted that the proposals announced during the event will be worked out and taken into account in the further work of deputies to improve the judicial system.
