UNDP and the Supreme Court join forces to improve the work of court executorsOct 8, 2014
Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan - Training for court executers of the Judicial Department under the Supreme Court of the Kyrgyz Republic is taking place in Bishkek on 7-8 of October 2014. Participants of the training are discussing issues of court enforcement proceedings, international standards, novelties of the draft law "On Court Enforcement Proceedings", mechanisms for the enforcement of decisions and succession in the enforcement proceedings. 28 court executors of Bishkek city and Alamedin district are participating in the training.
According to Taalai Mukalaev, head of Department for Legal Affairs of the Judicial Department, the training is very important as it is directly related to practical tasks which the court executors face during their work on organizational issues, procedures, legislation and the most efficient mechanisms of enforcement proceedings.
During the training court exectors learned more about modern international standards, organization of the court executors’ work: commensurability (the debtor must save minimum of property), timely fulfillment of enforcement actions and legal equality of parties of the enforcement proceedings.
Participants of the training noted that human rights (both of the claimant and the debtor) should not be abused during the actions of court executors. It was also announced that efficiency of court executors’ work depends on their qualification.
In recent years there has been an outflow of personnel, newly hired executors need more training and retraining. It’s especially acute because the work of court executors is becoming more complicated.
"Even experience executors experience problems. So in order to make the system move in the right way it is necessary to think through the training courses for newly hired executors. International experience shows that in many countries before taking official position of court executor, a person undergoes required training” highlighted Ms. Nikolaeva the court executor of the Leninsky district of Bishkek city.
Participants of the training also discussed difficulties they face during performance of their duties, they discussed suggestions for social welfare improvement of the court executors.
The training was organized by the Judicial Department under the Supreme Court of the Kyrgyz Republic together with UNDP Project “Improving the Rule and Access to Justice for Sustainable Peace”. According to manager of the project Gulmira Mamatkerimova, execution of court decisions is the primary element of trust and respect for the entire judicial system. “Role of justice is not fulfilled until a court decision is executed” she stressed.
