General Director’s word
Judge Dr. Jamal Haroun

Dr.Nawal Al-jawhari

The judiciary is a sacred profession and a sublime mission, and the work of judges emanates from the work of the apostles. Everyone knows the importance of the judiciary and its position in society. Through it, blood is preserved, honors are preserved, money is preserved, and rights are delivered to their owners, injustice and the oppressor are suppressed, the oppressed are helped, and security and safety are made to prevail in society.

Accordingly, the judge must be qualified, specialized, well-informed and familiar with the principles of the law by which he judges, given that justice is the ultimate goal, and this requires judges to have the highest professional standards and to constantly strive to achieve the right balance between competing interests. Moreover, judges must constantly keep abreast of scientific and social developments. However, judges cannot do all of this with a personal and individual effort by each of them, which requires each specific country and the countries of the world collectively to carry out their duty towards judicial training, and to assist the judiciary and administrative auxiliary agencies and strengthen the role of Judicial training institutions to carry out their duties in strengthening the rule of law, and enhancing joint cooperation, to rehabilitate and activate training institutions for judges, prosecutors and members of the judiciary, which will bring common benefit to all humanity. For example, but not limited to, transnational organized crime has become a serious challenge to state agencies in many countries of the world and constitutes a challenge to the whole world, which requires international cooperation to confront transnational international crime.

In this regard, the United Nations Convention against Organized Crime, which was adopted by United Nations General Assembly Resolution No. 25/55 of November 15, 2000, is the main international instrument for combating organized crime. Transnational organized crime is considered one of the biggest challenges facing the world, which forces the world to endeavor to combat it.

The process of judicial training and joint judicial cooperation is not limited to penal issues and organized crime, but extends to all branches of law, including human rights, executive and organizational matters and the effective enforcement of the provisions of the law.

The biggest challenge in the process of qualifying and training judges at the international level lies in the process of coordinating cooperation between countries, and coordinating work between judicial training institutions of each country with the rest of judicial training institutions of other countries, so that these institutions work as a single training institution.

It is hoped that the Euro-Arab Judicial Training Network, as a judicial training network consisting of a number of public institutions for judicial training in the member states of the European Union and the member states of the League of Arab States, will work diligently and effectively to achieve the tasks mentioned in Article 3 of its statute, as well as work on achieving the activities of the network stipulated in Article 4 of that regulation, and I am confident and certain that the network is a valuable tool and a platform for judges of the member states of the network and for fellow judges all over the world and that it is able to continue to work and move forward in the exchange of information and judicial developments with the members of the network and fellow judges around the world.

I wish the network and its member states and all judicial training institutions in the world further progress and prosperity.
