Official Announcement Concerning National Crime Observatory Depends on Approval of Creation Decree (Official)
Rabat – Minister of Justice Mohamed Ben Abdelkader said, on Tuesday in Rabat, that the National Crime Observatory is ready with its executives and its operating mechanisms, but its official announcement will be made only after final approval of the creation decree.
“The decree has been finalized and it is awaiting its presentation to the government,” said Ben Abdelkader, in response to a question on “the creation of the Crime Observatory”.
He also noted that this body is intended to be an important national mechanism, not only in the fight against crime, but also to lay the groundwork for Morocco’s criminal policy, noting that this Observatory follows recommendation 92 of the national dialogue for the reform of the judiciary.
The Minister also recalled that HM King Mohammed VI had underlined, in his royal speech delivered in August 2009, the need to modernize the penal policy, through the creation of the National Crime Observatory, under the jurisdiction of the Department of Criminal Affairs and Pardons at the Ministry of Justice.
