As part of the European Union Police and Rule of Law Mission’s (EUPOL COPPS’) support for the Palestinian Ministry of Justice, the Mission funded the printing of 40,000 new templates with improved security features that will enable the Criminal Record General Administration to issue non-conviction certificates that are extremely difficult to forge. The donation was made by EUPOL COPPS Head of Mission Kauko Aaltomaa during a meeting with Minister of Justice, Dr. Mohammad Shalaldeh, on 30 June 2020.

In terms of further support, EUPOL COPPS will support the Criminal Record General Administration in reviewing the Criminal Record Regulation. In addition, the Mission will continue supporting the Criminal Record General Administration and the IT Unit of the Ministry of Justice in enhancing the new so called “One-Platform” for the issuing of non-conviction certificates. Many institutions are involved in the process of issuing these certificates; each providing a piece of the puzzle. Already, many of the interinstitutional challenges have been overcome through discussions facilitated by the Mission and the Ministry of Justice.

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.
