0 179

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has called for training of judges on collection of evidence, analysis and storage for prosecutors and investigators of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) to strengthen such cases in court.

The minister gave the indication at a mock court trial organised by the ministry in collaboration with the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC), as part of activities to mark the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence.

Malami represented by the Director, Public Prosecution Unit Abdulrahim Shuaibu said the development will complement ongoing efforts to ensure successful prosecution of SGBV cases as well as secure convictions. He assured of efforts by the ministry to address bottlenecks affecting the establishments of more SARC’s in the country.

Earlier, the National Programme Manager of the Rule of Law and Anti Corruption ROLAC, Danladi Plang, says the mock court as demonstrated at the occasion is a reflection of the strength of a specialist court with mandate to reduce trends of SGBV cases in the country.

There are presently,34 SARC’s in 19 states of the Federation.
