The Republic of Moldova needs profound reforms in the activity of internal affairs bodies and police bodies as institutions mandated to protect the rights of the people. Starting from this premise, Promo-LEX Association has officially released today, July 1st 2019, the “Civic monitoring of the Police reform in Moldova” Project, implemented with the financial support of the European Union.

The project is based on the supervisory role of civil society organizations during the implementation of reforms, as well as on the right of citizens to participate in the decision-making process. Thus, through its monitoring actions, in the next three years, Promo-LEX Association will contribute to strengthening the accountability, efficiency and transparency of the Police reform in the Republic of Moldova.

    “As in other parts of the world, the citizens of the Republic of Moldova have the right to a professional and modern police service that meets human rights standards and agrees to operate in a transparent manner. Two years ago, the European Union started its support program for police reform in Moldova. This project launched today together with Promo-LEX Association is indeed proof that we are determined to continue on this path, and, therefore, in close cooperation with the delegation of the European Union, Promo-LEX will monitor the work carried out under the program for police reform. The actions will include monitoring major public procurement procedures that track the way the taxpayers’ money is spent”. said H.E. Mr. Peter Michalko, Ambassador of the European Union Delegation to Moldova.

    The project primarily focuses on the work of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the General Police Inspectorate, which need not only direct financial support for the implementation of the Police Development Strategy for 2016-2020, but also a neutral external opinion on the implementation of this reform and the results achieved in respect thereof.
