2019-10-17 › OSCE builds the capacity of the Prosecutor General’s Office to implement criminal justice reform in Kyrgyzstan
Assisting the ongoing criminal justice reform in Kyrgyzstan is a priority of the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek and the Kyrgyz Government, with the aim to strengthen the rule of law.
A series of training courses on capacity building will be held from 16 to 18 October and from 23 to 25 October in Bishkek and Osh. Staff of the Kyrgyz Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) will participate in order to learn the basic tools and mechanisms of application of the criminal legislation in the country.
The courses will be conducted by the Training Centre for Prosecutors and Investigators under the PGO, and supported by the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek and the International Development Law Organization Branch Office in Kyrgyzstan.
The courses aim to examine real-life cases where practitioners face challenges in the application of the criminal legislation that entered into force in 2019, as well as the recently introduced Unified Registry of Crimes and Misdemeanors; which stores and shares data on the pre-trial proceedings in an online database. Participants will also get acquainted with common errors that may arise during the implementation of the new criminal legislation, and identify ways of their legal and practical resolution.
The legal and technical bases of the Unified Registry were developed and adopted in 2017 and 2018 by the PGO with the support of the OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek.
