Magistracy in Algeria has utmost importance under new Constitution

ALGIERS- Minister of Justice Belkacem Zeghmati said Thursday in Algiers, that "the magistracy in Algeria has the utmost importance following the latest revision of the Constitution," adding that the President of the Republic has "honored his commitment to building independent judiciary."

The minister has installed the committees in charge of the revision of law on the statute of the Magistracy and the organic law establishing the composition, functioning and powers of the Superior Council of the Magistracy (CSM).

President Tebboune's attachment to making this commitment a reality "stems from the voice of the people during the authentic blessed Hirak who called for independent judiciary which applies only by law, demanding Rule of Law, a popular democratic state where no one is subjected to injustice," he added, calling for "the new provisions of the Constitution are taken into account in organic laws and are fully enshrined."

 In this regard, Zeghmati underlined "the commitment of the public authorities to respond to the people aspirations, to bring the country out of the current situation, through the revision of these two important laws, so as to guarantee the 'independence of magistrates and to preserve the rights of litigants."

 He recalled the Article 173 which stipulates that "the judge refrains from any breach of his duties of independence and impartiality. He is bound by the obligation of reserve. The magistrates are accountable to the Superior Council of the Magistracy, according to the procedures prescribed by the law and for the manner in which they discharge their functions."

 The independence of the Judiciary, like the separation of powers, "remains a major objective which can be achieved if there is good will," he concluded.
