PROJECT DESCRIPTION :
Since April 2018 the Government of Ethiopia has launched a series of bold and comprehensive reforms in the country. New initiatives aimed at broadening democratic participation, strengthening justice and the rule of law, creating accountable systems of governance have been undertaken. Legislative and Institutional reforms have been introduced in the justice system. Legislative reforms include the revision of the Charities and Societies Proclamation, Electoral Laws, the Anti- Terrorism Proclamation, Federal Courts Proclamation, the Judicial Administration Commission Proclamation, the Media Law, Criminal Procedure and Evidence Code, and new legislation on Hate Speech. The Federal Supreme Court revised the Federal Courts Establishment Proclamation and the Judicial Administration proclamations. Institutional changes were made through the appointment of new leadership and structural changes. The Prison Administration and Federal Police Commissions were set up under the structures of the Attorney General and the (newly established) Ministry of Peace, respectively. Direct administration of non-judicial staff of the Federal Supreme Court as opposed to under the Civil Service Commission is approved by the parliament and transition is underway.
Justice sector institutions are mainly entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring respect for the rule of law, protection of human rights, and delivery of justice to citizens. Coordination, collaboration, and harmonization of efforts among justice institutions is an important factor that contributes to the achievement of the goals of the justice sector reform. At the Federal level, the Justice Sector Steering Committee (JSSC/ Abiy (Main in Amharic) Committee) comprising of the Federal Supreme Court, the Office of the Attorney General, the Federal Police Commission, the Addis Ababa Police Commission, and the Federal Prison Administration, has developed a ‘Common Agenda of Institutions of Justice’, with a view to carrying out justice-related operations in a coordinated manner. The Common Agenda outlines issues of common concern across the justice sector institutions. The Common Agenda is expected to be translated into a Comprehensive Justice Sector Program which will be implemented as of January 2022. The Interim Support to the JSSC focuses on implementing short-term activities. Among these activities is a capacity building on the revised anti-terrorism proclamation.
It has been more than a decade since Ethiopia enacted a legal framework specifically devoted to the prevention and control of the crime of terrorism. However, the first Anti-terrorism Proclamation that was enacted in 2009 was widely criticized for its incompatibility with the FDRE Constitution and international and regional instruments ratified by Ethiopia. This Proclamation was revised following the advent of political change in Ethiopia. The 2020 new Proclamation aimed at maintaining proportionality between the criminal conduct and the punishment to be imposed on those accused of committing terrorist acts.
Therefore, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the JSSC, is commissioning capacity-building training on the new anti-terrorism law for judges, prosecutors, the police, and prison commission staff. To this end, UNDP is recruiting a consultant to prepare a training module and conduct training on this legislation for judges, prosecutors, federal and Addis Ababa police, and prison police.
