The Delegation of the European Union (EU) to Indonesia, UNDP Indonesia and the Supreme Court of Indonesia held a closing ceremony of their five-year project to Support to the Justice Sector Reform in Indonesia (SUSTAIN). The project has provided technical assistance to the Supreme Court and its subordinate courts to increase transparency, integrity and accountability of the judiciary and the quality of justice services delivered to the people.
The event was attended by the Indonesian Chief Justice H.E. M. Hatta Ali, Chargé d'affaires a.i. of the EU Delegation to Indonesia Mr Charles-Michel Geurts, and UNDP Resident Representative Christophe Bahuet.
Mr Charles-Michel Geurts, Chargé d'affaires a.i. of the EU Delegation to Indonesia, said "The EU appreciates the strong commitment of the Supreme Court and the pilot Courts and congratulates them for all the reform achievements that have been made with the support of the SUSTAIN project. The sustainability of these achievements will require continued commitment from the Government's budget to maintain all new systems developed. We welcome the Supreme Court's continued momentum to achieve its Blueprints for Judicial Reform to the benefit of Indonesian citizens, in particular the most vulnerable groups."
