Rabat – Minister of justice and liberties, Mustapha Ramid, expressed strong resolve to go ahead with reforming the judiciary system “whatever the price is”.
“We are determined to go ahead with reforming the judiciary system whatever the price is”, said Ramid on Tuesday at the monthly forum held by MAP news agency.
After conceding that any reform process might face refusal and protest, the minister stressed that everybody should pay the price of these reforms, mainly judges, lawyers, court clerks and other stakeholders and even the justice ministry which will become a mere technical department.
He also recalled that dialog on reforms is now closed, pointing out that the two organizational laws on the higher council of the judiciary power and the statute of magistrates will be ready in less than a week to be referred to the Government’s secretariat general before being submitted to the council of ministers.
He added that the same approach of comprehensive and decentralized dialog with all the stakeholders will be adopted for all other associated draft laws in order to conduct deep and comprehensive reforms, insisting that any reform that neglects citizens’ interests is “nil”.
He also announced that a new law governing the grace procedure will be ready in the coming days, stressing that the new text, being prepared in accordance with the High instructions issued by HM King Mohammed VI, “will meet the expectations of everybody and be adapted to the ongoing mutations in Morocco.”
