Six high-ranking Public Prosecutors took part in a study trip organized in cooperation with the Legal Policy Research Institute of the People’s Procuratorate (RISPP). From the 1st until the 8th of July, the delegation visited several institutions in Germany and The Netherlands to learn more about the German and Dutch Public Prosecution Service. Under the leadership of Mr. Dan, the delegation visited several branches of the public prosecution service in both countries. They also visited the Ministry of Justice in Berlin to learn more about the requirements to become a judge and public prosecutor in Germany. In The Netherlands an introduction was given by the office of the board of prosecutors general.
During the trip a variety of subjects were discussed; from the internal structure of the public prosecution service, to the way they handle smaller cases efficiently. The trip provided the delegation with much information about the way the public prosecution service in Germany and The Netherlands function, are organized and which decisions they can take. It also left room for an interesting exchange between the German and Dutch experts and the delegation members about the problems they encounter and the solutions they have found in their fight against crime.
