The new headquarters of the Court of First Instance of Nabeul were inaugurated last week by the Tunisian Justice Minister Mohamed Karim Jamoussi in the presence of EU Ambassador in Tunisia Patrice Bergamini, representatives of the judiciary, lawyers and local authorities of the governorate of Nabeul.

The rehabilitation project of the Court was implemented in the framework of PARJ (the Support Programme to Justice Reform) since 2014 with an EU-funded budget of €2.4 million.

EU Ambassador Patrice Bergamini renewed EU commitment to support the improvement of judicial services in order to make justice efficient and accessible to all. He insisted that the inauguration of these new headquarters illustrates the privileged partnership that unites Tunisia and the European Union.

The Support Programme to Justice Reform aims at reinforcing the independence and impartiality of the judiciary and modernising the infrastructure and equipment. It also seeks to enhance the quality and efficiency of justice while making it more accessible to the citizens.
