Namibia to attend Commonwealth law ministers meeting in Tanzania

The United Republic of Tanzania is all set to welcome ministers and attorneys-general, from commonwealth countries, including Namibia, to the Commonwealth Law Ministers Meeting in Zanzibar on 4 March 2024 under the theme: ‘Technology and Innovation: How digitalisation paves the way for the development of people-centred access to justice. Law ministers will examine ethical ways to use technology to make legal services and information more accessible to people, while exploring responses to threats, such as cybercrime.

Hon Ambassador Dr Pindi H. Chana, the United Republic of Tanzania’s Minister of Constitutional and Legal Affairs and Chair of the 2024 Commonwealth Law Ministers Meeting said: “We expect to get a lot of benefits following this meeting as the topics that will be discussed will help to find the right ways to strengthen and enforce the law and access to human rights.”   The meeting’s four-day agenda will cover a range of topical legal issues, including digital assets, electronic resources for efficient legal systems, access to justice for people with disabilities and developments in climate legislation.

The outcomes from the meeting will shape the agenda for the upcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Samoa later this year. The meeting will be held at the Mora Hotel in Zanzibar from 4 to 8 March 2024.
