Status of Magistrates to Be Revised in Parliament

On Tuesday 9 April, the government approved the revision of the statute for judicial magistrates, with the aim of adapting it to the current socio-economic reality and filling in gaps in the rules of management and discipline, as well as safeguarding the composition of the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSMJ), which is diverse.

According to the spokesman for the Council of Ministers, Filimão Suaze, the document will soon be submitted to the Assembly of the Republic (AR) for consideration and debate, emphasising that this revision is “a real revolution”.

“At the moment, the CSMJ is made up of members elected by the AR, based on the proportionality of the deputies. The aim here is to fill in some of the gaps in the rules, particularly in terms of management and discipline,” he said.

At the same session, the Executive appointed Luís Cezerilo as national coordinator of the Executive Committee for the Coordination of Policies to Prevent and Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (BC/FT).

Reporting to the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the organisation’s mission is to monitor and coordinate the identification, assessment and response to ML/TF risks to which Mozambique is or will be exposed.

“In addition to complying with the state’s international obligations in terms of preventing and combating ML/TF, particularly those deriving from the 40 recommendations coming mainly from the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the Executive Committee must also work in accordance with the best international practices for preventing and combating ML/TF,” he emphasised.
