The Judiciary has partnered with the Anti-Corruption Bureau and Financial
Intelligence Authority in enhancing the capacity of Magistrates in the country
and raising their standards of knowledge for competent management of
corruption and financial crimes cases.
The Judiciary Integrity Committee has collaborated with the two institutions
to provide technical assistance to the Magistrates through conducting
training sessions in the judicial regions. The sessions are targeting
professional Magistrates and First Grade Magistrates for speedy and better
disposal of the rising corruption and financial crime cases by the subordinate
courts in the country.
Chief Justice Rizine Mzikamanda, SC opened the first session on 14th
Ilala Crest Lodge in Mzuzu and called upon magistrates to utilize the training
package to deliver desired services as per the public expectations. The
training is being facilitated by the Anti-Corruption Bureau and Financial
Intelligence Authority with emphasis on fraud activities, bribery,
embezzlement, money laundering, forgery and counterfeiting.
The other sessions are scheduled for August and September this year.
