Judicial system objectives


The objective of criminal policy is to reduce crime and increase public security.

The objective of the judicial system is to ensure the rule of law and legal security for individuals. The ‘rule of law’ means that the administration of justice and other exercise of public authority must be predictable and consistent, and must be conducted to a high standard. ‘Legal security’ means that private individuals and other legal entities must be protected from criminal attacks on life, health, freedom, integrity and property.

The objective is also to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
