A joint firefighting exercise in Aqaba between the Jordanian and French naval forces.
A joint firefighting exercise was held in Aqaba between the Royal Jordanian Navy and the French National Seafarers aboard the Beautemps-Beaupré vessel on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
A concrete cooperation between the Jordanian and French naval forces.
This exercise took place at the end of Beautemps-Beaupré's call in Aqaba. It shows both the degree of cooperation between the two armies and the ease with which it is implemented through concrete exercises. Mutual knowledge of firefighting methods and techniques increases efficiency and improves interoperability between the two navies.
Seminar on International Judicial Cooperation in Criminal Matters
The National School of Magistracy and the Judicial Institute of Jordan organized a training in the field of international judicial cooperation in criminal matters in collaboration with the French Embassy in Jordan on October 16 and 17, 2017 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Amman.
The seminar was opened by HE Awad Abu Jard, Minister of Justice, HE David Bertolotti, Ambassador of France and Dr. Thaer Al Adwan, Director of the Judicial Institute of Jordan, where 27 Jordanian magistrates and 3 Palestinian magistrates participated.
The two days were led by two French experts specializing in judicial cooperation: Mr. Joël Sollier, General Counsel at the Court of Appeal of Lyon and Mr. Régis Pierre, Investigating Judge at the Tribunal de Grande Instance in Paris.
The program focused on the practice of international judicial cooperation, in particular with regard to the two conventions on mutual legal assistance and extradition between Jordan and France, which entered into force on 1 August 2015.
The exchanges and practical cases presented made it possible to discuss the different techniques of judicial cooperation that are useful for combating international crime, the most prominent of which is terrorism.
This judicial training colloquium thus contributed to enriching the dialogue between the judges of the two countries and in disseminating the judicial mechanisms necessary for the consideration of international criminal cases.
