Ethics training for judges begins

KAT0034 72A ceremony for the start of the introduction to judicial ethics for judges was held yesterday at the Thingaha Hotel in Nay Pyi Taw, with the Union Chief Justice issuing a solemn address.
U Htun Htun Oo, Union Chief Justice, said if judges in Myanmar do not abide by judicial ethics, legal action will be taken against them. “It is necessary to legislate new ethics on judicial affairs and to implement newly legislated ethics, hence the cooperation with the technical aids of the (ICJ) International Commission of Jurists, United Nations Development Programme. As a result, the manual of judicial ethics compatible with international standards for judges in Myanmar came into practice. Presently-issued judicial ethics for judges in Myanmar to abide by is designed to designate standards on judicial behaviour for judges and to give guidance in performing judicial affairs.” “Principles included in judicial ethics are compiled as a norm, aiming at for executive and legislative authorities, lawyers and the public to be able to assess the performances of the judicial sector. For issuing such judicial ethics judges, judicial staff as well as justice-related persons will come to be well convinced of the judicial system. And we firmly hope for the emergence of a just, fair and strong judicial system by bolstering necessary supports.” Present at the ceremony were Chairman Constitutional Tribunal of the Union, Union Supreme Court judges, Region and State high courts’ chief judges, Hluttaw representatives, department heads, invited guests from civilian and international organisations, professors on law faculty in universities in Yangon Region, lawyers and responsible persons from the Union Supreme Court Office.
Afterward, a workshop on implementation of judicial ethics and a meeting on discussion of judicial ethics for judges in Myanmar was begun.   —Myanmar News Agency
