Morocco, KSA Foster Judicial Cooperation


An executive program for judicial cooperation between Morocco and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia was signed on Thursday in Tangier, during the International Conference on the Digital Transformation of the Judicial System.

The program, signed by Morocco’s Justice Minister, Abdellatif Ouahbi, and his Saudi counterpart, Walid bin Mohammed Al-Samaani, aims to enhance cooperation between the two countries in the legal and judicial administration spheres, in line with the Riyadh Arab Agreement for Judicial Cooperation.

Under this agreement, the two parties will collaborate and coordinate their actions in areas such as judicial organization and court management. Additionally, they will actively participate in international conferences related to the field, promoting the exchange of judicial decisions, publications, registers, and other aspects of judicial administration.

Moreover, the agreement seeks to bolster the exchange of expertise and information in legislation and judicial administration. It also establishes a joint working team to oversee the collaboration’s issues and activities.

The conference, organized by the Ministry of Justice in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), demonstrates Morocco’s dedication to justice and its alignment with the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Under the theme “The Digital Transformation of the Judicial System: A Vector for Efficient and Inclusive Justice,” the two-day event aims to showcase how digital transformation in the justice system can contribute to achieving SDGs, particularly those related to justice, equality, access to justice, and effective institutions.
