Bruxelles, March 27 - Judges need to be left to do
their jobs without interference because judicial independence in
Italy is imperative for an investor-friendly environment, EU
Commissioner for Justice Viviane Reding said on Wednesday.
"Hands off the judges. If the goal is a truly independent
judicial system, then let them (judges) do their jobs," said
Reding when asked if she believes that in Italy the conflict
between politics and justice causes inefficiency.
"Italy and the (outgoing Premier Mario) Monti government
are aware that the problem of efficiency in the civil justice
and administrative systems has a negative impact on
investments," Reding said.
Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi has been embroiled in a
battle with magistrates, claiming for years that a group of
prosecutors and judges is trying to drive him out of politics.
Centre-right leader Berlusconi has staged a series of
street protests against magistrates and vows to continue, saying
that the government needs to focus on reforming the justice
system.
