Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko met with Presiding Judge of the Supreme Court Valentin Sukalo. The meeting focused on the performance of the national court system after general courts and economic courts were merged, further optimization of the court system, and ways to improve law enforcement practice in a number of areas. Valentin Sukalo said that the merged court system has worked in this manner in Belarus for three years already. Today the court system is rather stable, rational, and manageable from the organizational point of view. The structural optimization of the Belarusian court system was also discussed during the meeting. The current number of judges will be preserved. Thus, only high-ranking courts will be optimized. The judicial manpower and the quality of justice will be preserved.
