Logroño, (EFE) European decisions.
Vilas has participated in a round table during the conference “How European decisions on Justice affect citizens”, in which the president of the Superior Court of Justice of La Rioja (TSJR), Javier Marca, has also intervened.
This day is part of the informal meeting of Justice and Interior Ministers to be held in Logroño on the 20th and 21st, within the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
It is about “bringing the institutions closer to the citizens and the very fact that the different informal councils are held in Spanish cities is a sign of that spirit”, Vilas explained in an informative meeting.
He pointed out that “another sample is this act in the informal council environment to bring the European institutions closer to the general public”, since “it is important to be connected to the European institutions and know who makes the decisions on what to be citizens free in a democratic and legal State such as Spain.
“The concept of information, before consenting to anything, is necessary in a file and in life as citizens of advanced states it is essential,” Vilas stressed, for whom, “in the field of Justice, there are many specific decisions , but, in general, we don’t know where the previous bases came from”.
For its part, Marca has highlighted that this round table has had a “very interesting” intervention by teachers and students from various institutes that have participated in the Educate in Justice Program, which this year has been carried out in 10 educational centers with the participation of more than 770 students and the disinterested collaboration of 3 magistrates and himself.
