ST. PETERSBURG, June 8 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin who has ended a tour of Central and East Asia countries, will take part in St. Petersburg on Friday in the opening ceremony of a new city court building.
The construction was launched on May 30, 2008 under the federal target program “Development of the Russian Judicial System in 2007-2012.” The total area of the building is 60 thousand square metres. It houses all the rooms of the city court, including the archive, as well as the bodies of the judiciary: Judges’ Qualification Board, Board of Examiners and the Judicial Council.
The head of state’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists that President Putin will also hold a meeting with representatives of all branches of the judicial authority, which will focus on improving the country’s judicial system.
“During a conversation with the judges the president will announce a number of decisions that have major importance for the judiciary,” Peskov said.
The meeting will be attended by the chairmen of the Constitutional, Supreme and Arbitration Courts, Justice Minister and Prosecutor General of Russia.
