Togo: Justice Support Programme reviewed

(Togo First) - Yesterday, the Justice Support Programme was reviewed during the third meeting of its Steering Committee.

In detail, the program’s four axes of intervention were reviewed. These include the reinforcement of justice’s regulation framework, improving access to law and justice for the people, reinforcement of framework relating to fight against corruption and illicit enrichment. Last is the improvement of framework for cooperation between justice and police, leading to efficient processing of legal cases.

Regarding the axis relating to the justice’s regulation framework, workshops were organized to boost skills of the various actors of justice. One of these workshops focused on bettering the management of jurisdictions and training justice actors on the program budget.

Concerning the improvement of access to law and justice, a sensitization campaign about litigants’ rights and responsibilities and magistrate’s ethics and deontology was launched by the Higher Council of the Judiciary (CSM). 

For the fight against corruption and illicit enrichment, control bodies were reinforced, both in terms of training as well as in regards to rolling and IT equipment.

Last, about the cooperation between justice and the judicial police, the work group including magistrates and police officers has standardized detention registries to the Luanda Guidelines. The latter aim at improving the treatment of persons subjected to arrest, police custody and pre-trial detention to ensure that the treatment complies with the relevant international norms.
