Russian President Vladimir Putin called to enhance the level of confidence in the court system when speaking at the ninth All-Russian Congress of Judges in Moscow, Tuesday.

Putin stressed that "it is imperative to protect the purity of the judiciary establishment and increase the level of confidence in the courts as the main defender of rights of any man regardless of his income, age, nationality, public post or even citizenship if he is within Russian jurisdiction."

The Russian President also emphasised that the work of the qualification board of judges responsible for the primary selection of candidates "needs to be improved."

Putin also noted that "judicial authority provides special powers to the people working in its system, and it is quite fair that the requirements imposed on them must be raised" before adding that "the judge must be an example of objectivity, incorruptibility and integrity in his actions and decisions."

The All-Russian Congress of Judges is taking place in Moscow and is set to run until Thursday. The congress is dedicated to the issues related to the judicial system and its development. More than 750 delegates, including representatives of the Russian courts are participating in the event.
