The network of Councils for the Judiciary is of vital importance to the development of independent judiciaries in Europe, chairman of the Dutch Council for the Judiciary Frits Bakker said Wednesday.
Frits Bakker addressed the Members of the European Network of Councils for the Judiciary (ENCJ) at the headquarters of the Dutch Council in a short speech, together with the Mayor of The Hague and ENCJ President Lord Justice Geoffrey Vos. Frits Bakker said that ‘by cooperating we can learn from the best. By learning we can excel as judiciaries. And by excelling we can assure the best justice for all European citizens.’
