President Vujanović congratulated on the Days of Montenegrin Judiciary
“On the occasion of Days of Montenegrin Judiciary, with a feeling of high regard, let me express my belief that performing the judiciary duty has a special value, which is one of the bases of a state governed by the rule of law.

Independence of judiciary is undoubtedly fundamentally important for democratization of society and promotion of equality. Meaning of independence is to provide conditions for a judge to arbitrate impartially in order to ensure adequate application of law.

It is clear that the society governed by rule of law may not function without independent judiciary and legal security and more quality life of our citizens may not be realized without professional and efficient judiciary.

Future changes of Constitution will additionally promote independence and autonomy of judiciary, which is absolutely the interest of both the state and society.

Esteemed judges, European integration process is founded on provision of full promotion of independent and efficient judiciary. In realization of this goal, the state and, I expect, entire society, will surely provide their assistance and support.

I would like to take this opportunity, as always, to express my respect for your self-sacrificing, dedicated, professional and above all patriotic engagement in the Army of Montenegro. Due to such relation all the citizens and the state of Montenegro are obliged to respect you to the maximum extent, as you deserved it.

In the NATO Summit held in Chicago in May the 28 states, 21 of which are the EU member states, concluded that the reforms in the field of politics, economy and security of Montenegro deserved full acknowledgement. Thus, they expressed their respect to the Army of Montenegro, our reforms in the field of politics and economy and to the entire Montenegro. It was concluded in the summit that our Army was a stability factor not only in the Western Balkan but also in the South-East Europe and great and significant respect was expressed for our participation in the peace-keeping missions especially ISAF mission in Afghanistan. Montenegro has proved its readiness to contribute to peace in the world for more than a century. We have shown our determination to act globally and help globally exactly by our participation in these missions. Regardless of the size and numerousness of the army we are a part of the global peace and global defense of democracy. I want to express special respect from this place exactly to these members of the army who participate in the peace-keeping missions and to say that they should know that, although they are not here with us, they are in our thoughts, our emotions, we care about them, and they are among us.

I would like to say also what the Chief of Staff stated that we are obliged to take maximum care of the quality of life in our Army. Your successes, sacrifice and patriotism oblige us to that. We will continue to take care of the material status of our army; we will make efforts to provide for material circumstances in order to raise the quality of life to a high level. We will continue with housing policy measures and provide for apartments to the army’s employees. This important question of survival will be resolved also taking into account the relation of the state to the Army of Montenegro for the efforts it makes. On the other hand, you will continue to promote value and reputation of Montenegro and to show with full strength and deeply from your heart that you belong to the great Army, which has always deserved full respect both throughout its history and now.
