Reform of judicial system involves development of judicial infrastructure and revision of criminal system (Ghazi Jribi)

Justice Minister Ghazi Jribi said, on Friday, the ministry is working in more than one way to promote the judicial service and to strengthen citizens’ confidence in the judiciary, while adapting the judgments rendered to international human rights standards.

Jribi, who chaired a meeting on the launch of a national comparative study and studies specific to the regional programme on “the application of human rights standards in national justice”, said the department is working to develop the judicial infrastructure through the establishment of new courts to bring the judiciary closer to citizens.

The department is also working to manage prison overcrowding and improve conditions in prisons, which, according to the minister, require a review of the penal system to reduce the number of defendants who would be closer to that of the convicts.

He cited, for example, the German and Anglo-Saxon systems which remained the most effective despite the absence of investigating judges and prosecuton chambers, in his view.

In the context of the reform of the judiciary, the Ministry of Justice intends to implement alternative sanctions and amend certain laws, such as Act 52 on combating Narcotics, the amended version of which was adopted Thursday by the Cabinet meeting, he added.
