Proposals to improve judicial service discussed at AMT’s National Council meeting

Tunisian Judges’ Association (AMT)’s National Council affirmed at a meeting Saturday Prime Minister Youssef Chahed’s commitment to provide all necessary means to strengthen the judicial service and improve its performance.

The AMT had submitted to the PM a set of proposals aiming to improve the material situation of judges and working conditions in courts, AMT President Radhoua Karafi said at the end of the meeting.

These proposals provide for the creation of a fund dedicated to improving the quality of the judicial service by introducing a tax on judicial services, Karafi explained.

It further consists of introducing an allowance for all extra judicial tasks and another one to compensate for taking complicated and complex cases, she added.

She added that these proposals also provide for granting a travel allowance for service requirements.

She further spoke of the judges’ turnover, saying it should meet the criteria of independence, integrity, neutrality and competence.

We must break with the previous practices when it comes to the turnover and promotion of judges, she noted.

In this respect, she stressed that the association is closely monitoring this operation.
