The release of the Fair Trial Standards Guidebook was held at Nay Pyi Taw’s Hilton Hotel yesterday.
Union Attorney General U Tun Tun Oo delivered the opening speech at the event.
He noted that the Guidebook was written for legal professionals, in a bid to develop the legal sector and see its members provide work that meets international standards. The rule of law is the foundation for security and human rights, and is instrumental in developing the nation, noted the union attorney general.
He added the guidebook would benefit legal practitioners in administering unbiased judgment, and ensure freedom, fairness, and justice for the people, as the Office of the Union Attorney General (OUAG) moves forward with the rule of law, as part of the OUAG’s 2015-2019 strategic plan.
Following the speech, Director General Daw Khin Cho Ohn of the Prosecution Department explained, in detail, the contents of the guidebook.
Attending the event were union ministers, the deputy attorney general, members of the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission, chairpersons and secretaries of the Pyithu and Amyotha Hluttaws committees, Hluttaw MPs, members of the Legal Affairs and Special Cases Assessment Commission, specially invited guests, permanent secretaries and directors-general of union organisations and ministries, officials from the United Nations Development Programme and International Development Law Organisation, state and region Advocates general, representatives from local and foreign organisations, civil society organisations and other invited guests.
