Minister of Justice Bassam Talhouni on Monday discussed with Qatari Prime Minister Abdullah bin Nasser Al Thani ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation, especially in legal and judicial areas.
Talhouni met with the Qatari prime minister on the sidelines of the international conference currently held in Doha on "National, Regional and International Mechanisms to Combat Impunity and Ensure Accountability under International Law", according to a statement by the ministry.
The Justice minister also met with the President of the Court of Cassation, the President of the Supreme Judicial Council, Alhassan Almohanadi , and his Qatari counterpart Issa Saad al-Jafali al-Nuaimi, and discussed means of improving relations between the two countries in the legal and judicial domains.
During the meeting, Talhouni noted the importance of the ministry's technical and legal services which contribute to enhancing the independence of the judiciary and enabling it to carry out its tasks in achieving justice and strengthening the rule of law.
The Jordanian minister also met with the Attorney General of Qatar, Ali Bin Fetais Al-Marri, where they talked about a number of issues related to improving prospects of cooperation between both sides in legal and judicial fields.
The ministry of Justice is an executive arm of the judicial system and always cooperates with the judicial authority by providing the judiciary with logistical support, Talhouni stressed.
Al-Marri expressed his admiration of the development achieved by the Justice Ministry in several fields, which in turn support the judiciary and speed up judicial proceedings.
