Morocco, Senegal Strengthen Cooperation in Penitentiary, Reintegration matters

In a bid to enhance ties in the fields of penitentiary and reintegration, Morocco and Senegal signed a cooperation protocol on Wednesday in Rabat, marking a pivotal moment in the collaboration between the two nations.

The protocol, initialed by Mohamed Salah Tamek, Morocco’s General Delegate for Penitentiary Administration and Reintegration, and Abdoulaye Diagne, Director General of Senegal’s Penitentiary Administration, took place on the sidelines of the 1st Executive Committee Meeting of the African Correctional Services Association (ASCA).

The primary objective of the protocol is to bolster cooperation between the Moroccan and Senegalese institutions, specifically focusing on training initiatives and the exchange of experiences within the penitentiary and reintegration sectors.

Under the terms of this cooperative effort, both parties have committed to sharing information related to training objectives, reintegration programs, social initiatives, and the overall management of penitentiary establishments.

Additionally, the agreement includes provisions for organizing pedagogical training sessions for personnel from both nations. Special study days dedicated to common-interest topics within the penitentiary and reintegration domains are also on the agenda.

The 1st Executive Committee Meeting of ASCA, attended by several African states, including Senegal, Ghana, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Botswana, and the Central African Republic, follows the committee’s election during the 6th Biennial Conference of the Association held in Dakar last May.

Over the course of two days, representatives from the African states forming the Executive Committee will scrutinize ASCA’s various activities and engage in discussions surrounding the challenges faced in the governance of the penitentiary sector across the African continent.
