Morocco :Reform of judiciary system

H.M. the King calls for comprehensive reform of judicial system  Tetuan – H.M. King Mohammed VI called Thursday on the Government to develop a well-defined plan that reflects the strategic depth of the reform of judiciary system.  In a speech on the 56th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People, the sovereign said this reform should revolve around six pivotal axes. These include enhancing the safeguards for an independent judiciary system, modernizing the legal system, upgrading its structures and human resources, bolstering judicial efficiency, consolidating the moralisation process and ensuring optimal, effective implementation.  No matter how relevant the strategic, long-term objectives may be, we should still keep in mind that the citizens need to have a clear perception of the positive impact of the reform in the short run,” said the monarch.I therefore instruct the Government, especially the Ministry of Justice, to start the implementation process in six priority areas,” said the sovereign, affirming that this endeavour should consolidate guarantees of independence by granting the High Council for the Judiciary the status it deserves as a full-fledged constitutional body, and entrusting it with the powers it needs to manage judges’ careers. The king insisted on the need of reconsidering the mode of election of Council’s members, make sure they have the necessary competence and integrity, guarantee a representativity of women that tallies with their presence in the Judiciary, streamline its working methods. Similarly, the regulations governing the judge’s status should be revised to ensure more professionalism, accountability and impartiality, and steps should be taken to boost the career promotion process. Likewise, by–laws should be enacted to address the status of court clerks, and there should be an overhaul of the legal framework governing the various judicial professions,” underlined the Monarch.This drive seeks to update the legal system, especially where business, the investment environment and the conditions for fair trial are concerned,” said the Sovereign, affirming that this requires developing a new penal policy, that involves reviewing and harmonizing criminal law along with the penal code, which should be brought in line with the current changes. To this end, a national crime observatory should be set up, while efforts should continue to upgrade reformatory and penitentiary institutions, he added. It is also necessary to develop alternative judicial approaches such as mediation, arbitration and conciliation, and to devise substitutes for sanctions meted out by the courts, noted the Sovereign. He also stressed the need to upgrade the judicial and administrative structure by applying, within the Ministry of Justice as well as in the courts, new governance rules based on the principle of administrative devolution. The aim is to grant judicial officers the necessary powers, including a mandate to carry out periodic and ad-hoc inspections, said the Sovereign, stressing the need to adopt a roadmap and to address the issue of judicial organisation, using a rational approach which is in line with the requirements of the proposed reform. The reform aims also at upgrading the human resources in terms of training, performance and evaluation, and working, at the same time, for the improvement of the material benefits granted to judges and judicial support staff, underscored the Sovereign.  The social aspect should also be addressed, mainly by setting up the Mohammedia Foundation, H.M. the king announced. This move would reflect the monarch’s longstanding commitment to the well-being of the members of the legal profession.  The sovereign also called for increasing judicial efficiency, in an effort to address the hardships endured by the citizens as a result of the shaky, slow and complex administration of justice, mainly through “streamlined, transparent procedures, sound judgements, easier access to court for citizens seeking justice, swifter treatment of court filings and enforcement of rulings. In His nationwide address, H.M. King Mohammed VI also called for moralizing justice to shield it from corruption and abuse of authority, and enable it to contribute to the moralization of public life, via legal means.      This must proceed as part of programmes with specific objectives and stages and with well-defined means for implementing, monitoring and evaluating them, said the Sovereign. At court level, the success of the reform is contingent upon the adoption of the devolution approach and on the availability of adequate staff, said the Monarch, calling on the High Council for the Judiciary to hold a special session and make recommendations for the appointment of judicial supervisors who are qualified for field work and able to carry out such a vital reform. This “long” and “arduous” task, the monarch said, requires the full mobilisation not only of members of the legal profession, but of all institutions and productive forces, and indeed of all citizens,” deeming the proposed substantive reform of justice as a prerequisite for instilling the values of democracy and citizenship in the hearts and minds of young people and emerging generations.

inpbpm :How can corruption be countered?

To address the corruption problem in individual countries a comprehensive and global approach is required. National and international systems of transparency and accountability must be built up.

This includes introduction or strengthening of preventive and punitive measures.

The preventive measures are intended to create conditions that promote good, honest, transparent and efficient public management, as well as high standards in the private sector. The punitive measures punish corrupt actions taken, by means of judicial or administrative organs. Countering corruption also requires enhanced international cooperation. Individual governments can make progress with domestic preventive and punitive measures but, given the international aspects of corruption, they will also need to cooperate with other governments in order to have lasting success. This may take the form of mutual legal assistance. Cross-border international cooperation in law  enforcement is often key to the successful prevention and prosecution of corruption cases. Development cooperation is also a necessity since some countries will neither be able to address domestic corruption nor help other countries in cross-border law enforcement without technical and financial assistance. Anti-corruption conventions provide a framework for strengthening preventive and punitive measures. They also address the need for international cooperation and provide frameworks for technical assistance.

inpbpm :The Corruption of Principles and the Decline of the State

The corruption of each government begins almost always with the corruption of its principles…Once the principles of a government have been corrupted, even the best laws become bad and will turn against the State; whereas when the principles remain healthy, bad laws may have the effect of good ones; the force of principle carries everything with it…

Few laws are not good when the State has not lost its principles; and, as Epicurus relates in speaking of wealth: “It is not the liquor which has become corrupted, but the vessel that holds it.”

Morocco’s Economy Showed Significant Resilience to International Crisis, PM

Morocco’s Economy Showed Significant Resilience to International Crisis, PM

Rabat – The Moroccan economy has fared well and has shown significant resilience vis-à-vis an exceptional international crisis thanks to the various measures taken by the government to support domestic demand, Prime Minister Abbas El Fassi said on Monday.

These incentives concern mainly the strengthening of investment and consumption, two essential drivers of the Moroccan economy which achieved a growth rate of 5.6% in 2008 and 5.3% in 2009, said El Fassi who presented Monday at the House of Representatives the results of the government action at the end of its mid-term mandate.

Thanks to its dynamic structural reforms, Morocco managed to lessen the impacts of the international crisis by carrying out an anticipatory policy and a strategic approach, El Fassi said, calling for further vigilance and mobilization to face the effects of this crisis which continues to threaten the national economy.

He noted that the strategy adopted by the government on the matter is based on energizing domestic demand and reinforcing the most affected export fields through the setting up of a Strategic Watch Committee.

According to the Premier, the government also pays particular attention to the post-crisis period through the diversification of exports in high-potential fields and the launch of a new generation of structural and sector-based strategies.

El Fassi said the public investment budget has doubled from 82 billion dirhams in 2007 to 163 billion dirhams in 2010 with the aim to speed up the process of structural projects, increase average consumption by 7% in 2008 and 2009 compared to 4% in 2007, preserve 100,000 job opportunities thanks to urgent measures, and decrease unemployment rate from 9.8% in 2007 to 9.1% in 2009.

He said the government seeks to vary growth sources through the launch of a new generation of integrated sector-based strategies such as “Green Morocco” in the field of agriculture, “Halieutis” in fisheries, the “National Charter for Industrial Development” (PNEI) “Digital Morocco 2013” and “Vision 2020” in the tourism industry.
