Rabat, 02/12/2022 (MAP) – The experience accumulated by Morocco in terms of independence of the judiciary and separation of powers is a source of inspiration for the administrative court of the African Union (AU), said the president of this pan-African jurisdiction, Judge Sylvester Salufu Mainga.
« The separation of powers and the independence of the judicial system and the legislature in Morocco are a source of inspiration for the AU administrative court, » said Salufu Mainga, who participated in the meeting dedicated to the revision of the Statute and Rules of Procedure of this pan-African court, organized from November 21 to December 2 in Rabat, noting that his visit to the Kingdom at the head of a technical committee of the AU was an opportunity to « learn » from the experience of the Moroccan system in the framework of the reform process of this court.
The effectiveness of Moroccan constitutional and representative institutions, including the Court of Cassation, the House of Representatives and the House of Councilors, represents a « role model » for the court, which intends to carry out several reforms, he said in an interview with « M24, » MAP’s on-air news channel.
« We were able to see how the Moroccan system worked and we are learning from it, » he added, stressing the need to reform the court’s structure and procedures, which date back to 1966 and 1967.
It is worth recalling that during their stay in Morocco, Salufu Mainga and the members of the AU technical committee met with the first president of the Court of Cassation, the deputy president of the Supreme Judicial Council (CSPJ), Mohammed Abdennabaoui, the King’s Attorney General at the Court of Cassation, the president of the Public Prosecutor’s Office, El Hassan Daki, the president of the House of Representatives, Rachid Talbi El Alami, and the president of the House of Councilors, Enaam Mayara.
