Iraq: Visit of the President of the Federal Supreme Court to the headquarters of the CJCA
The President of the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court, the Honorable Judge JASSEM Mohamed Abboud and the delegation accompanying him, paid a visit to the headquarters of the Conference of African Constitutional Jurisdictions in Algiers, where they were received by Counselor Moussa Laraba, Secretary General of the organization, who gave them explanations on its functioning and its attributions.
On this occasion, the President of the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court officially requested the membership of the Iraqi Federal Supreme Court in the African organization as an “Observer Member”.
As a reminder, the Conference of African Constitutional Judicial Bodies is an organization which was created by virtue of a decision taken by the Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Kampala in 2010. Algeria hosts its headquarters which currently brings together 48 African Constitutional Courts and four non-African Member States as observers, namely Brazil, Turkey, Russia and Iraq.
