According to Rui Ferreira, who was speaking at a meeting with court officials in Cambambe, Cuanza Norte province, within that perspective, the courts cannot fail, otherwise they will jeopardize the consolidation of the rule of law.

For the judicial magistrate, who is visiting the Cuanza Norte for two days, this task should count on the contribution of the Government and the citizens.

In Cuanza Norte, the chief judge of the Supreme Court has been evaluating since Wednesday the conditions for the creation of district courts established in the framework of the reform of justice and law.

Among other objectives, the reform of justice and law provides for the creation of the draft Law on the Organization and Functioning of Courts and Common Jurisdiction.

It also includes the revision of the Civil, Criminal, Criminal and Civil Procedure codes.
