The US Ambassador to BiH, Patrick Moon, will recognize the nine prosecutors’ offices that participated in training and improvements under the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Justice Sector Development Project (JSDP).
Ambassador Moon will also deliver $70,000 worth of equipment under USAID’s JSDP program.
The event will be held on Thursday, December 8, at 11:15, at the RS Prosecutor’s Office, Vladike Platona bb, in Banja Luka. All media are invited to attend.
The event demonstrates USG support to the justice sector in BiH, especially support to strengthening the role of prosecutors. USAID’s JSDP works with the High Judicial and Prosecutorial Council, the Ministry of Justice, courts and prosecutors’ offices to promote the independence and accountability of the judiciary and improve the functioning of the three branches of government.
JSDP also works with citizens and organizations to advocate for stronger justice institutions and increases public engagement in promoting the rule of law.
Creating credible, effective and independent justice institutions in BiH is essential for the country to strengthen the rule of law and protect the rights of its citizens.
As BiH strives to move closer to European Union accession, a more unified justice system will be necessary to harmonize and enforce its legal framework with EU standards.
To date, the U.S. Government, primarily through USAID, has provided more than $1.5 billion in assistance to support economic, democratic and social progress in BiH.
