The Arab Union of Administrative Judiciary’s fourth general assembly kicked off Wednesday (March 14th) in Amman, the Jordan Times reported.
Cassation Court and Judicial Council president Mohammad Ghazo opened the two-day conference, noting it was a continuation of a series of meetings and symposiums related to the union.
Jordan’s constitutional amendments, made in 2011, have played a crucial role in improving administrative judiciary law, which has contributed to developing its judiciary and expanding its terms of reference to ensure speedy and safe procedures to achieve justice, Ghazo said.
Head of the Egyptian Council of State Ahmad Abul Azem said holding the conference in Amman was in keeping with the notion of establishing a union based on joint action.
The meeting aimed to solidify the concepts of justice and equality through the judiciary, he said, noting the important role of administrative judges in bolstering security, stability and equality.
Established in 2015, the Arab Union of Administrative Judiciary consists of supreme administrative courts and councils of state from 15 Arab countries.
Jordan has headed the union since 2018.
