Economic crisis poses new challenges, European prosecutors say

Budapest, May 26 (MTI) – The global financial and economic crisis has posed new challenges to prosecutors all over Europe, including a rise in, and restructuring of, crime in several countries, the European network of prosecutors-general concluded on Saturday.

The network held its fifth plenary session in Budapest from May 24 to 26 with Hungary’s chief public prosecutor Peter Polt in the chair.

 

The independence, impartiality, financial autonomy and efficiency of prosecutors are values that have been especially upgraded in the current situation, the network said in a declaration approved on Saturday.

 

“It is a basic requirement that the economic crisis should not have a negative impact on the standards of prosecution,” the prosecutors said.

 

Polt, who chaired the network for a year, has been replaced by Andrzej Seremet, Poland’s chief public prosecutor.
