WAEMU Court of Justice Hosts Sensitization Worskop in Lomé, Togo

(Togo First) - The Court of Justice of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) currently hosts a sensitization session for Togolese judicial actors in Lomé. Started on May 28, the meeting ends on 31, 2024. It aims to clarify the legal and institutional framework of WAEMU, the Court’s competencies, and its applicable procedures.

The ongoing workshop aims to increase the Court's visibility. Indeed, many stakeholders are unaware of its attributions and this can hinder its effectiveness in supervising compliance with community law and treaties.

During the workshop, local judicial actors will learn about aspects such as the mechanism of prejudicial recourse and the role of national courts in the application of community law.

The Minister of Justice and Legislation, Mipamb Nahm-Tchougli, said that Togo's participation in the meeting will help the country benefit from the Court's expertise in various areas of law, including tax, customs, competition, banking, public procurement, and accounting. This, he added, will make it easier for the country to comply with community law and treaties.

Established in 1996, the Court of Justice of WAEMU has advisory and jurisdictional functions, thus strengthening the legal framework of the Union and contributing to the harmonization of judicial practices within the region.
