Hon. Mustapher Siyani, the Judge In Charge of the High Court of Tanzania, Dodoma Zone officiated the capacity building training to eighty-five Juvenile Justice Frontline Workers to Enhance Justice for Child Victims of Sexual Violence.

The five days training which was conducted on 24th – 28th August 2020 organized by Tanganyika Law Society (TLS) in collaboration with the Institute of Judicial Administration (IJA), Lushoto under the support of USAID through PACT under a project named; Faith & Community Initiative: Engaging the Criminal Justice Sector.

The overall objective of the training was to provide Juvenile Court personnel (Magistrates, Prosecutors, Social Welfare Officers (SWOs), Advocates, Clerks, etc.) with knowledge and skills to implement the Law of the Child Act of 2009 and Law of the Child (Juvenile Court Procedure) Rules, of 2017 effectively and to handle children’s cases in the Juvenile Court accordingly. Along with that, there were specific objectives which are;

  1. To facilitate understanding among participants on the aims, objectives, and overriding principles for handling cases in the Juvenile Court, including principles from domestic and international law, to facilitate understanding of the requirements of the Law of the Child Act (Juvenile Court Procedure) Rules on the operation of the Court.
  2. To facilitate understanding of the child protection role of the Juvenile Court, to provide technical knowledge and concrete examples of best practices for the Juvenile Court, and;
  3. To facilitate the exchange of ideas amongst participants about the delivery of justice in cases in the Juvenile Court.

The training was conducted in Dodoma region at Royal village Hotel and the Justice Frontline workers trained involved Resident Magistrates working in Primary and District Courts, Public Prosecutors, and Social Welfare Officers working under the respective Local Government Authorities. These participants came from Dodoma, Morogoro, Tabora  Shinyanga  Bukoba, Dar Es Salaam,  Iringa,  Mara, Mwanza,  Tabora, and Singida regions.

Speaking during the opening remarks, The Tanganyika Law Society Representative, advocate Mary Munissi, The TLS Chapter Convener Dodoma Chapter, welcomed participants to the training on behalf of the President of the Tanganyika Law Society. The Chapter Convener explained that TLS decided to collaborate with the Judicial Institute of Administration (IJA) to create awareness to Magistrates, Prosecutors, and Social Welfare Officers on the Law of the Child Act of 2009 and Law of the Child (Juvenile Court Procedure) Rules, of 2016 in implementation of its statutory mandate to assist the Judiciary and the Government to ensure access to justice for all especially children who are among the vulnerable members of the society.

Ms. Mary Munissi extended her appreciation to PACT for funding the initiative and to IJA for collaborating with TLS to implement the project by availing facilitators within the short timeframe in which the project is to be implemented

TLS representative further urged that the training should be replicated to privacy advocates as they too are key stakeholders in the implementation of the Law of the Child Act especially where a child needs legal representation. In addition to advocates, other key stakeholders who would benefit from the training include police officers especially from the children and gender desk and prison officers.
