Andorra participated in the conference of justice ministers of Ibero-American countries. The event took place in Madrid. The delegation of the principality was headed by the Minister of Justice, Social and Internal Affairs of Andorra Xavier Espot – he signed the protocol on the accession of Andorra to the conference of justice ministers of the Ibero-American countries (COMJIB).
This signature completed the preparatory work for the entry of Andorra into COMJIB, an international organization that unites 21 Ibero-American countries with the justice ministries. The conference is convened in the form of a plenary session every two years. This international organization was founded in 1992.
Andorra’s participation in COMJIB is a part of the strategy of the Andorran government, based on the expansion of international judicial cooperation in the countries of the Ibero-American space.
The main issues that lie in the organization’s area of responsibility are justice, crime prevention, gender violence, combating international organized crime and legal cooperation.
In his speech, Xavier Espot said that over the past 15 years, Andorra ratified many conventions and became a member of the United Nations, as well as the Council of Europe. Currently, Andorra fully supports the 24th international document on judicial and police cooperation.
