Turkey, Sweden sign judicial cooperation agreement

26 March 2011, Saturday /TODAY’S ZAMAN
The Turkish Ministry of Justice and the Swedish National Courts Administration on Friday signed a new bilateral two-year agreement for the justice system to enhance cooperation between Turkey and Sweden in the process of European Union accession.

Establishing a court of appeals in the administrative judiciary, strengthening confidence in the judiciary, supporting the court of appeals reform, restructuring tasks and court management, and juvenile justice are designated areas of cooperation under the agreement.

Issuing a press release, Hakan Akkesson, Sweden’s ambassador to Turkey, said that “justice reform is a key area in the EU accession process. We look forward to seeing the continued cooperation between Sweden and Turkey bring about further progress in Turkey’s path towards EU membership.”

Reiterating that their bilateral cooperation has continued since 2007, Akkesson stressed that Sweden, being a strong supporter of the further enlargement of the EU, supports Turkey’s EU accession process in several areas.
