Capacity-Building Program for Prosecutors and Investigating Magistrates in MENA and Sahel

Starting Date2017-05-20 Ending Date2017-05-22 Marrakesh

On 20-22 May 2017, the IIJ organized with the support of the European Union, a capacity-building program for 22 prosecutors and investigating magistrates from Djibouti, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, and Tunisia in Marrakesh, Morocco. The sessions were facilitated by an investigating magistrate from the Paris CT judicial unit, a senior official from the Moroccan financial intelligence unit, police and investigation experts from the United Kingdom, and a United States prosecutor, as well as regional experts from the UNODC and the Institute for Security Studies.

The workshop focused on the development of strategies that provide for an effective relationship between the investigation and the prosecution and lead to lawful and human rights compliant cases before the court; the nature and quality of evidence in investigation and prosecution so that the evidence is available for use in court proceedings (including physical evidence, forensic evidence, electronic evidence, witness evidence and intelligence-derived information); and court processes and proceedings (including handling of witnesses and juveniles).
