Croatia could open judiciary policy chapter by end-June.

By bne IntelliNews June 4, 2010
Croatia could open the policy chapter on judiciary and fundamental rights in its EU accession by end-June, an EU diplomat has said. The chapter could be opened after the assessment of a report on the country's cooperation with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), carried out by ICTY chief prosecutor Serge Brammertz and submitted to the UN Security Council. According to the report, Croatia has made progress in investigating missing military documents, however, not all investigations have been examined. We note that U.S. vice president Joe Biden has expressed his country's support for Croatia's EU candidacy and the country's cooperation with ICTY. He stressed that the U.S. welcomed the reforms, which the government was trying to implement, as well as the fight against corruption. The European Commission has already submitted its draft negotiation position on the judiciary and fundamental rights policy chapter. The position was forwarded to the Council of the European Union and has to be endorsed by member states before opening. The judiciary and fundamental rights is one of the three chapters, which have not been opened by the country yet.
