Special Chargé d’Affaires Ambassador Hugo Llorens attended a ceremony at the Supreme Court today to donate more than $110,325 worth of technical and office equipment to assist the Court in enhancing a justice system that serves the Afghan people. Ambassador Llorens and Chief Justice Sayed Yousuf Halim met to formalize the donation of these items.
The U.S. Embassy, through the Justice Sector Support Program (JSSP), has provided mentors, training courses, and equipment to build the capacity of the administrative functions of the court. Supreme Court staff identified this equipment, which includes desktop computers, laptops, printers, scanners, copiers and office furniture, as important for the completion of essential administrative functions.
Ambassador Llorens remarked, “The United States is committed to supporting the Afghan justice system and the efforts of those who are working to strengthen access to justice for all Afghans. This donation will allow Supreme Court employees to do their important work more effectively.”
This donation is a sign of the U.S. Embassy’s continuing commitment to strengthening the rule of law in Afghanistan.
