Dakar, May 24 (APS) – The Minister of Justice, Keeper of the Seals, Ousmane Diagne, assured, Friday, that legal action will be given “without weakness and with complete objectivity” to the shortcomings and other reproaches pointed out by the Court of Auditors and other supervisory bodies.

”Most of the control bodies, starting with the Court of Auditors, in their conclusions, called for prosecutions. It will be up to the prosecution bodies, in particular the services of the public prosecutor and the public prosecutor’s office, to examine the reports on a case-by-case basis, and to assess the follow-up to be given,” he declared during a interview with the Senegalese Press Agency (APS).

Reports from the Court of Auditors and other state control bodies have recently been made public. They noted shortcomings and rules in the management of public funds and in certain cases made recommendations in the direction of legal proceedings against certain people.

The Minister of Justice stressed that the most responsible attitude would consist of referring each case to an investigating judge and giving him full latitude to assess the conduct to be taken “as soon as one enters the framework of ‘a dynamic of examination and accountability”.

”The most responsible attitude is to let the judge decide on the follow-up to be given to each case without weakness and in a completely objective manner,” indicated the Minister of Justice.

He did not fail to note the importance of carrying out this public action without considering or running the risk of giving a connotation of settling scores to this procedural approach.

”There is no settling of scores. You just have to answer for your actions. The people concerned must be able to respond to the criticisms and grievances made against them,” argued Ousmane Diagne.

He ultimately reiterated that it will be up to justice, that is to say, magistrates and judges to decide in complete independence and objectively.

“The purpose of a report, since its authors recommend prosecutions, can only be prosecutions which will be initiated and entrusted to experienced independent magistrates called to decide on the follow-up to be given and possibly the sentences to be distributed,” he added. recalled the Keeper of the Seals, Minister of Justice.
