PODGORICA, 17 November 2017 – EU Support to the Rule of Law II Project has organised a study visit to the ICT Department of the Secretariat of the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council of Bosnia and Herzegovina from 13 until 15 November 2017.
The purpose of the study visit, which forms part of the EURoL II project activities, was to generate exchange of experiences and good practices on the development and implementation of judicial information system between Montenegro and Bosnia and Hercegovina.
Participants from Montenegro included the Head of the Division for Information System of the Judiciary Ministry of Justice, the Head of the Division for IT Infrastructure and Data Security – Ministry of Justice, the independent advisor at the Division for ICT and Multimedia of the Secretariat of the Judicial Council as well as the independent advisor at the Secretariat of the Judicial Council. The delegation was accompanied by the EURoL II IT and Logisitc Officer.
Colleagues from Bosnia and Herzegovina provided Montenegrin delegation with the information about the CMS system that is currently running and providing services to the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council’s staff. Montenegrin delegation was also presented with several presentations from the ITC department staff regarding actual software solutions for the CMS system. Furthermore, the delegation visited the Data centre, a storage point for all the scanned documents. Visit to the Data centre – with detailed explanations from BiH colleagues about equipment installed, problems encountered, and how those problems were solved – was an excellent opportunity for the Montenegrin delegation to find out what kind of activities are needed for proper installation, maintenance and further functioning of the Data centre.
The objective of the study visit was met and the Montenegrin delegation has benefited from the share of knowledge and information with the colleagues from Bosnia and Herzegovina; they provided the delegation with a solid ground for planning activities needed to implement the same or a similar system in Montenegro.
