President of the Hellenic Republic, Katerina Sakellaropoulou, urged for radical reforms in the country’s Justice system that has been suffering from years especially with long delays in serving justice.
“For one to be able to find solutions (to the issues of Justice) radical reforms are needed and not small changes and adjustments. But reforms need consent, need bravery and mutual concessions,” Sakellaropoulou said during a meeting held at the Presidential Mansion, with representatives of the justice sector.
She referred to the problems that the Greek judiciary has been facing over time and noted that both due to her previous capacity, as a judge for 40 years, and her current one, she has the duty to raise the issue of the need for dialogue on the issues of Justice.
Because, as she noted, “the issues concerning Justice do not all require the intervention of the legislator, but many can be dealt with within the framework of the current legislative framework,” she said, pointing out that “all the bodies of Justice must be willing to reflect and to cooperate.”
