Immediate measures need to be taken in the justice system, Attorney-general Costas Clerides said on Sunday in interviews with three papers.
Public confidence in the judiciary and its bodies will be restored when the necessary measures are taken to correct what is wrong now, but have also emerged in the past, he said in an interview with Alithia.
He said the recent public debate, which is still continuing, on the subject of justice has led to the disclosure of serious issues, which although they have been going on for a long time have not been taken seriously.
However, the high profile debate has led to measures starting to be taken, Clerides said, although how effective they are will be judged as time goes on.
Ten days ago the Attorney general complained that the Legal Services have been left out of discussions for judicial reform, which he said was “not a matter of intention or not exaggeration, but a fact”.
