Latvian Judge from the European Judicial Training Network at the Constitutional Court

24 September 2020 - Judge Dr Mario Jelušić received today Mrs Dace Rusko, Judge from Latvia, whom the Croatian Judicial Academy hosted within the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN) Exchange Programme. The Network, which was created in 2000, aims at fostering common legal and judicial European culture. The Exchange Programme was launched at the initiative of the European Parliament, and first implemented in 2005, with the financial support of the European Union.

Judge Jelušić introduced the fellow colleague to the functioning and organisation of the Croatian Constitutional Court, specially emphasising that the Court is not part of the judiciary.

Judge Rusko was particularly interested in the institute of constitutional complaint and the manner of addressing the backlog.
