Morocco, Zambia Discuss Means to Strengthen Judicial Cooperation

Rabat – Morocco’s Public Prosecutor at the Court of Cassation, President of the Public Prosecution, Mohammed Abdennabaoui, on Monday held talks in Rabat with Fulata Lillian Shawa Siyuni, Director of Public Prosecution in Zambia.

Speaking on this occasion, Abdennabaoui noted that the Moroccan public prosecution seeks to strengthen its partnerships, exchange expertise and reinforce cooperation in the judicial field with African countries, in accordance with the African policy led by HM King Mohammed VI.

Since its inception, the Moroccan prosecution has been trying to establish partnerships with other similar departments in other countries, he said.

“This visit by the Director of Zambia’s Public Prosecution is precisely part of this,” said Abdennabaoui, adding that these talks provide the opportunity to learn about the Zambian prosecution system “with which we want to cooperate more.”

For her part, Ms. Shawa Siyuni welcomed these talks, which are part of the strengthening of cooperation between the public prosecution departments of the two countries.

“We have learned a lot and we have noticed that we have achieved several achievements in terms of efforts made in this direction,” she said, adding that Zambia will draw on Morocco’s expertise in this area, “to make Zambia a better place for its citizens”.

The Zambian official’s visit to Morocco, which will run through March 14, takes place at the invitation of the Moroccan Public Prosecutor at the Court of Cassation, President of the Public Prosecution, with a view to strengthening bilateral judicial cooperation.
