YEREVAN. – The monthly salary of a judge of the anticorruption court being established in Armenia will make about one million drams. Deputy minister of justice Srbuhi Galyan on Friday said this in an interview with journalists.
According to her, from the point of view of international experience, a higher level of social guarantees is an acceptable system for such specialized courts. “I believe there are no obstacles for such a path,” the deputy minister added.
And when asked what the establishment of such a court will give to the Armenian society, Galyan noted that it will increase the level of trust, reduce the time for considering the cases, develop a single methodology for monitoring corruption cases, clarify the parameters, and increase the quality of justice.
She added that in parallel with this anticorruption court, a commission and a committee will be set up, as well as a department at the prosecutor’s office—and with their own oversight functions.
The deputy minister noted that in the first phase, two and a half dozen judges are planned to work at this court, but if necessary, the law provides for an increase in the composition of this court.
