This Wednesday, October 24, the new Ambassador of the European Union in Guinea (Union européenne en Guinée), His Excellency Mr. Josep COLL and the Minister of State, Minister of Justice, Keeper of the Seals, Mr. Cheikh Sako spoke about the Support Program for the Reform of Justice (PARJU), during a courtesy visit to the Chancellery.

This was an opportunity to highlight the concrete actions taken by the Ministry of Justice since 2014 for the rooting of a democratic culture in the Republic of Guinea.

Support for justice reform focuses on institutional support to the executive secretariat of the reform, a recasting of the judicial map, the training of magistrates, the humanisation of the penitentiary system, the renovation of prisons, and the fight against corruption and against impunity.

This meeting identified points of improvement for ongoing projects, with the constant aim of promoting access for all to an independent justice system:
– Update on the rehabilitation of 9 pilot prisons, a project implemented by the NGO “Terre des Hommes”
– Update on judicial clinics, project implemented by the NGO “FIDH”
– State of play of technical support and training workshops
– Outlook for the 2014-2024 action plan
