On 23 September 2015 Dr Stefan Hülshörster and Stefan Mironjuk of the IRZ met Vladimir Cebotari, Minister of Justice of the Republic of Moldova, who has been in office since late July.

Minister of Justice Mr Cebotari above all mentioned the issues of fighting corruption and the ethics of Members of Parliament as his priorities for the further cooperation. Other issues he considered as particularly important were the consultations of the German IRZ experts about the draft of the Moldovan administrative code which is intended to include both an act on administrative procedure and a code of administrative procedure, as well as further activities with regard to the further training of Moldovan administrative judges.

The next meeting is scheduled for late November. It will deal with the specific targets for the cooperation next year.
