Prosecutors from across Somalia wrapped up their two-day meeting in Mogadishu on Thursday by resolving to step up efforts to strengthen justice system in the Horn of African nation.

The conference that brought together prosecutors from the federal government and federal member states for their first annual conference also agreed to establish a Somali Prosecutors Association to strengthen the role that prosecutors play in the country’s justice system and better protect their independence and integrity.

“The national conference is useful in promoting cooperation among prosecutors,” Attorney General Ahmed Ali Dahir said in a statement issued at the end of the meeting.

The conference that sought to improve the relationship between institutions of the federal government and member states also discussed a code of conduct for all prosecutors in the country.

During the conference, participants also stressed the need to bring more women into Somalia’s justice system.

Fadumo Ahmed, a prosecutor from Jubaland, called on prosecutors to deal with complex family cases brought before the courts.

“The cases that come to my office are mainly about women, mothers and family issues. In such cases, they need a family prosecutor whom they can trust and freely share their problems with,” Ahmed said. Enditem
