CAIRO – 18 February 2019: Egypt announced Sunday launching the first African judicial online platform during the second day of the Heads of African Constitutional and High Courts conference held in Cairo.

The launch came upon recommendations of the conference's previous round and per instructions from President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to support cooperation with African countries.

The conference comes within the framework of the different state institutions’ move to collaborate with Africans after Egypt assumed the chairmanship of the African Union for a one-year term in 2019.

Head of the Supreme Constitutional Court Hanafy Ali Gebaly and Minister of Telecommunication Amr Talaat made the announcement during Sunday’s sessions of the conference.

According to the officials, the electronic platform targets the exchange of information and necessary data on judicial regulations provisions among the continent’s states.

“The constitutional judiciary protects rights; that’s why we launched an electronic platform that includes all information relevant to constitutional courts in Africa, and the explanations of its regulations,” said Gebaly.

The platform also aims to exchange expertise and to open discussions about legal provisions to maximize the benefit. It will further provide training opportunities for judges in different countries online.

Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly participated Saturday in the opening session of the conference along with ministers of justice, state for parliamentary affairs, immigration and electricity. Delegations of participants from African countries and different judicial authorities’ heads were also among attendees.
