The Latvian Code of Ethics for Prosecutors was developed and approved in 1998, that is, 23 years ago. The document has not been revised or updated during these years. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) 2021 study on the activities of the Prosecutor's Office in Latvia identified the need to review and update the Code of Ethics for Prosecutors, as well as to ensure that it is not seen as a formal document without any influence on prosecutors. The OECD conclusions were also endorsed by the State Audit Office in its audit report on the activities of prosecutors, emphasizing in particular the need to "vitalize" the code of ethics. Delna and The Prosecutor's Office has agreed to cooperate in the development of the updated Code of Ethics and the promotion of "vitalization". The aim of the project is to contribute to solving the problems identified by the OECD and the State Audit Office, as well as to strengthening the integrity of the Prosecutor's Office. The achievable result of the project is the development of an updated Code of Ethics for Prosecutors, as well as the development of a "vitalization" plan.
