Judicial officials from Germany visited the Constitutional Court

16 May 2014 - Judge Davor Krapac, F.C.A., Judge Snježana Bagić, Deputy President of the Court and Secretary General Dr. Teodor Antić, received today several judicial officials from Germany, who visited Croatia with the aim of finding out how our legal system functions after we became the EU member. Judge Krapac introduced the colleagues to the functioning and organisation of the Croatian Constitutional Court specially emphasising that the Court is not part of the judiciary. The judicial officials were particularly interested to hear about the process of election of constitutional judges, given that in Croatia the procedure for electing a judge commences with a public invitation. They were also interested in the work of the councils for deciding on constitutional complaints and how the Court tackles with the huge number of cases it annually receives.
