Cabinet of Ministers Approved the Resolution Significantly Reducing Prosecutors’ Remuneration
The Cabinet of Ministers approved the Resolution No. 763 setting forth official salary scale for prosecutors. The approved salaries are significantly below the remuneration amounts set forth by Article 81 of the Law on Prosecution. In this instance, the Government used its authority to implement Article 81 requirements taking into account the available financial resources; this authority was provided by transitional provisions of the 2015 State Budget Law. The remuneration amount established by the Government is critically low and such that can affect a prosecutor’s independence and increase corruption risks.
