In line with PADCS’ objective to improve the respect of the principle of fair trial, a seminar on the implementation of a real-time processing system for criminal proceedings in Mauritania was held in Nouakchott on 2 and 3 May.
This meeting brought together the public prosecutors at the courts of the three wilayas of Nouakchott and the courts of Kiffa and Aleg, the public prosecutor at the Nouakchott Court of Appeal, the public prosecutor at the Nouadhibou Court of Appeal, and the public prosecutor of the Supreme Court. The clerk’s directors and clerks attached to the invited public prosecutors’ offices were also present.
The participants were able to gain a very concrete understanding of the place of the prosecutor in his relations with the OPJs during the work of directing judicial investigations and to exchange on their professional practices in the context of their criminal activity by comparing them with the recommendations issued during the first two audit phases which were carried out in December 2018 and April 2019 in Nouakchott (activity A.2.1 of the PADCS).
A second seminar will soon be organised for the prosecutors of the Nouadhibou Court of Appeal.
