The Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, held a meeting with members of the Reform Commission for the Organic Law on Judicial Power. The meeting took place at the People’s Palace in Malabo, on August 29th.
From that day, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea has a new Organic Law that regulates the jurisdictional activities of Judicial Power within the Administration of National Justice.
The delegation made up of A�ngel Mesie Mibuy, Second Vice Prime Minister, Charged with Judicial Affairs from the Presidency of the Government and Parliamentary Relations; the new Attorney General of the Republic, Anatolio Nzang Nguema; David Nguema Obiang Eyang, leader of the Supreme Court of Justice; Fermin Nguema Esono, from the Constitutional Court, and the Minister for Justice, Worship and Penitentiary Institutions, Salvador Ondo Nkumu and other members of the committee, delivered the final report on the work to the President of the Higher Council of Judicial Power, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
Along these lines, the members of the commission, in order to adapt the Organic Law to the current circumstances in the country, have reformed aspects such as the reduction in the number of bodies necessary for the operation of the Administration of Justice, and other sectors of the Central State Administration; in addition to the criteria of qualification for those working as judges, magistrates and attorneys, and a reduction in administrative bureaucracy in the Administration of Justice in general, on a national level.
These reforms are an attempt to bring the Administration of Justice closer to the people, adapting the current legal system to the scale of the Global Judicial Platform, through the necessary competent personnel.
In order to close the official working programme for the day, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo met the Presidents of the Administrative Councils and Directors of Autonomous Companies and companies with a State Holding.
The Prime Minister, Charged with Administrative Coordination, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, headed the list of members of the Government attending the meeting, at which the leader of the nation reported on the work to be carried out in order to achieve the aims proposed at the two national economic conferences organised in the country.
In relation to the organisation of the Third National Economic Conference, the Head of State pointed out that companies, despite their intense economic activity, are not providing the State with the required management, even after the Executive has invested large sums of money, which in turn should work for the benefit of the people.
To achieve this, the President recalled the need to work with transparency, avoid corruption, and provide the Government with an account of the management process. To that end, a commission has been established and will inspect the operation of these companies and report on which are profitable to the Government, as the management of the State not only is the responsibility of the Executive, but the companies are responsible for important economic sectors, and form part of the development of the nation, and their activities should increase the income to the State coffers.
