The Students of the High School ”Ștefan cel Mare și Sfânt” From Grigoriopol Town Have Visited the Constitutional Court
On 17 May 2017, the Constitutional Court of Moldova (CCM) hosted the visit of a group of students of the high school ”Ștefan cel Mare și Sfânt” from Grigoriopol town, which is located in the Eastern segregated part of Moldova and who have to travel to another village – Doroțcaia, in order to learn in Romanian language.
The students were given presentations on the activity of CCM and its impact on advancing the European democratic values in Moldova. Thus, the group of students was welcomed by the CCM judge – Assoc. Prof. Dr. Aurel Băieşu and by the Secretary General of CCM – Mrs Diana Balan, who made a presentation of the powers and organisational structure of the Court and answered to questions from the audience on the impact of CCM on the day to day life of citizens.
The former judge of the Constitutional Court of Lithuania, who is an expert of the European Union project “Support for the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova,” Prof. Dr. Toma Birmontienė urged the students to study law and underlined the European dimension of the activity of CCM.
It is not for the first time when students from the self-proclaimed republic – Transnistria – visit the Court. Thus, for instance, in 2015 the students of the high school ”Lucian Blaga” became acquainted with the activity of the Court. The tradition to host visits of students from the segregated region of Moldova aims at raising awareness of the society as a whole and of the students on the rights guaranteed by the Constitution and how these rights may be defended within the competences of the Court.
The event was carried out with the support of the European Union project “Support to the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Moldova.”
