The European Union (EU) has donated $17 million into Zimbabwe’s justice system. The funds will be spread across stakeholders in the justice sector such as the Judicial Service Commission (JSC), Law Society of Zimbabwe (LSZ), Legal Resources Foundation (LRF), the Ministry of Justice, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs and the Chief’s Council.
Addressing stakeholders at the launch of the Zimbabwe Justice Sector Programme in Harare yesterday, EU Ambassador to Zimbabwe Phillippe Van Damme said the EU has put in Euros 14 million, which translates to $17 million to facilitate justice sector reforms. Said Van Damme:
In total, the value of the support to the justice and rule of law sector under this new programme comes to Euro 14 million, roughly $17 million. The projects we launch today are starting at an opportune time. The ongoing political transition presents a hopefully favourable environment for intensifying justice sector reforms. His Excellency, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, in his inaugural address and in his State of the Nation Address underscored the need for accountability to the people and for delivering services impartially, equitably and without bias.
