WILLIAM R. BROWNFIELD: Congratiolations on judicialprofiles.bg!

On February 17, 2012, U.S. Department of State Assistant Secretary for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs William R. Brownfield took part in a press conference organized by BILI to announce the launch of  the official TJAI website.  Brownfield commented that the solution to the challenges we are facing is for the government and society to work together by creating strong law enforcement and strong judiciary to adjudicate crimes in the community. He noted that the Bulgarian Institute for Legal Initiatives stands for a very important principle – transparency, and pointed out that every branch of government in any country in the world - executive, legislative, or judicial is better if it is transparent.  A/S Brownfield said that he is proud of the American support and American association with BILI’s Transparent Judicial Appointments Initiative. 

Mr Brownfield congratulated Ms Bilyana Wegertseder for the good work on the TJAI. She pointed out that this is an innovative project, based on time-tested international methodology and examples, but adapted to the Bulgarian legal context, institutional environment and culture, aimed at the increase of  judiciary independence and improvement of the career procedures via transparency and more civic participation.
