Kuwait Minister of Justice Fahad Al-Afasi

Kuwait Minister of Justice Fahad Al-Afasi said Monday political leadership in Kuwait highly appreciated judges and public prosecutors, so they could carry out their "sacred mission." The Ministry of Justice is keen on facilitating mission of judges and prosecutors, Al-Afasi, also Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, said.

He was speaking to KUNA on sidelines of an international justice conference, in the Moroccan city of Marrakech. Al-Afasi noted Kuwait Constitution guaranteed independence of judiciary, which was the guardian of rights and freedoms of the public.

He said his participation in the conference stemmed from Kuwait's desire to reach out to Arab and international partners to further promote independence of judiciary.

Al-Afasi, in his address to the conference earlier, said constitution was providing guarantees for judges to carry out their role "in an independent manner and away from any influence of guidance.

" The constitution of Kuwait, he added, affirmed "there is no authority over the judge in the court room and the intereference in judicial process is forbidden." The international conference features ministers, chief justices, prosecutors and legal experts from 80 Arab and Western countries.
