The European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission (EUPOL COPPS) delivered this week electronic thermometers, hand sanitisers, face masks, gloves and other items to the Attorney General Office (AGO) as a humble contribution to help the AGO and the Public Prosecution (PP) combat the outbreak of covid-19.
It has also delivered equipment to Palestinian Justice Sector institutions to enhance the working capabilities of staff during the COVID-19 health crisis. At the Ministry of Justice, Head of EUPOL COPPS Mission Kauko Aaltomaa and Minister of Justice Mohammad Shalaldeh signed the delivery agreement which included laptops, desktops and a one-year subscription to the online legal library (Dar il Marefeh) for the Legal Affairs Department. The support also included the development of an Arabic/English E-encyclopedia with legal information on the State of Palestine, accessible to the public from the ministry’s webpage on all technical platforms.
At the Diwan premises, Mr. Aaltomaa delivered computers and 100 copies of guidelines on ‘Drafting Primary Legislations’ and ‘Drafting Secondary Legislations’.
EUPOL COPPS is the European Union Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support. The aim of the Mission is to contribute to the establishment of sustainable and effective policing arrangements and to advise Palestinian counterparts on criminal justice and rule of law related aspects under Palestinian ownership.
