She expressed a strong interest in the work done by ENCJ. In a letter received after the General Assembly she repeated that she was impressed by both the volume and quality of the reports and recommendations adopted in Dublin. She was particularly interested in the minimum judicial standards and the related Dublin Declaration as the selection and appointment of judges is an essential element to safeguard the respect of the fundamental rights of citizens and businesses to an effective remey by an independent court in EU law cases, as guaranteed by article 47 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. She also underlined that it is a central aspect to ensure mutual confidence between the judiciaries across the EU in their mission to provide a fair and efficient justice for all.
