The Council of Europe Group of States against Corruption (GRECO) stressed on Friday the need for Cyprus to adopt a detailed and enforceable Code of Conduct for the judiciary.

Speaking during a press conference, after the conclusion of the meetings which a high ranking delegation of GRECO had on the island, in the framework of the fourth evaluation round of Cyprus, GRECO Chairman Marin Mrcela said that that they were presented with the Judicial Conduct Guide introduced recently by the Supreme Court, they had not time to look at it in detail but  they will, stressing at the same time that GRECO is looking for a detailed enforceable code, not a general statement of principles.

Mrcela recalled that GRECO issued 16 recommendations during the fourth evaluation round for Cyprus and that four of them are related to the judiciary.
