MOSCOW, November 12 (Itar-Tass) —— President Vladimir Putin promised to raise salaries of judges in lower-tier courts.
“It would be wrong to give maximum [pay] raises to the high-tier courts and minimum ones to the broad judicial community that examines the largest number of vases,” Putin said at a meeting of the Council for Civil Society and Human Rights on Monday, November 12.
He stressed that broader participation of the general public and its influence on the work of courts is a complex issue. “On the one hand, there should be influence, but on the other hand, judges should remain independent when they make decisions,” he said.
