The President-Delegate of the Supreme Council of the Judicial Power, Mr. M’HAMMED ABDENNABAOUI, affirmed that the judiciary, as it commemorates the annual anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is pleased to celebrate one-year anniversary of the launching of an ambitious human rights program aimed at strengthening judges’ capacities in the field of human rights.

The President-Delegate highlighted, on Friday 10 December 2021 in Rabat, during the inauguration of the second phase of the program "strengthening the capacities of judges on human rights", organized by the Presidency of the Public Prosecution in coordination with the Supreme Council of the Judicial Power and with the support of the Council of Europe and the European Union, the outcome of the program, which allowed 950 judges and officials to benefit from the first phase of specialized training in human rights, including 497 judges of the Public Prosecution, 110 judges and officials of the Presidency of the Public Prosecution, 222 presiding judges, and 10 judges and officials of the Supreme Council of the Judicial Power. As well as 108 officials belonging to other sectors.


Along the same note, the President-Delegate pointed out that organizing these training courses to build the capacity of judges in the field of human rights is not an end in itself, but rather a means to protect those rights, which Article 117 of the Constitution entrusted to judges and made them its trustees. It is also a key to learn about international experiences and practices related to the fundamental rights of individuals and groups, foremost of which is the right to a fair trial, the prevention of arbitrary arrest and the fight against torture, cruel or degrading treatment and enforced disappearance; as well as protecting vulnerable groups such as children and migrants, and protecting women.

The President-Delegate added that the concern for human rights has become a judicial culture in our country, through which judicial institutions seek to deepen the awareness of judges, strengthen their capabilities and qualify them to possess the legal qualifications and intellectual skills necessary for the proper application of legal texts protecting rights and freedoms, and regulating investigation and litigation procedures, in line with the international practices and the universal concept of human rights.
