Me Rashid Ahmine, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Mauritius, has insisted on the need to maintain independence and avoid influence within institutions during a discussion on the topic of trust in the criminal justice system. 

The event aimed to engage with the public and allow them to participate through sending in questions.

Me Ahmine stated that an effective criminal justice system is determined by conducting investigations and trials independently and with respect for the rights of both suspects and victims.

He highlighted the need for trust in the system, which requires institutions such as the police and law enforcement agencies to be independent in order to instill confidence in the public.

Me Ahmine also stressed the role of education in helping the public understand the law, the functions of each institution, and how the system works.

Other speakers at the event included former judges Vinod Boolell and Ah Foon Chui Yew Cheong, as well as Senior Counsel Narghis Bundhun.

They discussed topics such as the transparency of the judicial system, the need for timely verdicts, and the collaboration between lawyers and the media.

The speakers emphasised the importance of maintaining public trust by ensuring fairness, transparency, and accountability within the criminal justice system.

Other guests included representatives from the Mauritius Bar Association, the Mauritius Law Society, and other legal professionals.
