NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

Establishment

The Ministry of Justice was formed on the 5st of June 2021, and this consisted of legal professionals from various sectors, as well as other professionals and civil servants including legal officers, judges, and lawyers who had joined the Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM).

The Ministry of Justice carries out the duties of the Union Attorney-General’s office, and is also responsible for transitional judicial affairs, taking on the main responsibility of creating an interim judicial sector, as well as judicial management and monitoring of the different levels of courts, and administering the prisons, and so on.
