Russian President thinks it advisable to strengthen coordination of judicial branches of power

Russian President Vladimir Putin thinks it useful to strengthen coordination of the three judicial branches of power, deputy Presidential Administration head Dmitry Kozak said on Tuesday, while speaking at the plenary meeting of the Russian Council of Judges. According to him, the President has already taken a decision to hold quarterly discussions with representatives of the three judicial branches of Russia - the Supreme Court, the Supreme Arbitration Court and the Constitutional Court. Pressing judicial issues, including budget projects to define priorities in the development of a judicial branch, will be discussed in the course of the meetings. Dmitry Kozak also noted that it had been decided to set up a Judicial Chamber - a supreme body over all judicial branches of power. The proposal had been discussed in the working group on the improvement of the judicial system legislation, headed by Kozak. The President also charged judicial bodies with the task of improving the provision of the established order of courts' activity. While speaking on bringing regional laws into accordance with the federal law, Dmitry Kozak noted that "the scale of administrative disorder proved to be much less than it had been expected last March, when the idea had been approved". During the year, he noted, most legislation acts of Russian Federation constituents had been brought into accordance with federal laws. According to Kozak, in 2000 prosecution bodies appealed against 3.500 regional legal acts with 3.400 of them being already put into accordance with federal laws
