Themed “Best Prosecution Practice: Learning From Each Other”, this year’s 19th International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) Conference’s objective is to promote good relations between individual prosecutors and prosecution agencies; to facilitate the exchange and dissemination among them of information, expertise and experience; and, to that end, to encourage the use of information technology.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, officiated the 19th International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) Conference on November 24.
Amongst the topics that will be discussed during the conference are the Use of Technology in Prosecution Services, Achieving Excellence in Prosecution Service Delivery, Training, Development and Performance Appraisal of Public Prosecutors and Dealing with Youth Offenders.
Since becoming an organisational member of the International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) in 2002, the Attorney General’s Chambers of Brunei Darussalam has been sending representatives to attend the conference which is held annually, with the last conference being held in Moscow, Russia.
Notwithstanding the different stages of development and the wide variety of justice systems, processes and structures of prosecution services around the world, the said conference is an avenue for prosecution agencies to share their best practices and learn from each other.
Attended by attorney generals, public prosecutors and prosecutors from 156 countries, the said conference also serves as an excellent networking platform to further enhance friendly ties and cooperation between prosecutors.
The next International Association of Prosecutors Conference will be held in Zurich, Switzerland next year.
