The PNGCJE hosted a three-day conference on Cybercrime on 7-9 February in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea for Judges and Magistrates from Pacific Island Countries. The Conference was organized and facilitated by the Commonwealth Secretariat, which is based in London, United Kingdom. Executive Director for the PNGCJE Dr. John Carey indicated that this conference is a part of the organization’s efforts to provide judicial education and training in PNG for Pacific Island Judges and Magistrates.
There were over 45 participants from Pacific Island Countries and the three-day event covered many topics related to Cybercrime to further equip Judges and Magistrates with the tools to build upon their knowledge in addressing matters related to Cybercrime in their courts. It is anticipated that there will be many more activities for the region that will be held in Port Moresby.
Apart from delivering core regional training on substantial law and court practice and procedure, the Centre is also pro-active in the delivery of community-based awareness programs on improving access to justice, gender equity and social inclusion.
The PNGCJE intends to deliver 140 training activities this year and has a team of 20 in PNG that provides support to ensure the success of these workshops and conferences. Chairman of the PNGCJE and Chief Justice Sir Gibuma Gibbs Salika fully endorses the work of the PNGCJE in being able to provide judicial education and training that is world class in content and presentation.
