Magistrates in Chad at Crossroads as Calls for Resuming Activities Clash with Ongoing Strike
As an ad hoc group urges magistrates to resume activities in the courts from Monday, August 7th, 2023, the conflicting stance deepens as the two magistrates’ union offices persist in advocating for the continuation of the strike.
Deliberations Amidst Urgency
In an urgent meeting held on August 4th, 2023, at the N’Djamena Palace of Justice, the two magistrates’ union offices convened to address the intricacies of the situation. A joint statement, bearing the signatures of both union office presidents, sheds light on their assessment of “various maneuvers orchestrated by the Chancellery aimed at undermining the current momentum of our demands.”
The President of the Syndicate of Magistrates (Smt), Moussa Wadé Djibrine, and the President of the Autonomous Syndicate of Magistrates of Chad (Syamat), Taoka Bruno, underscore the gravity of the situation for the magistrates’ community. In light of these stakes, they call upon every magistrate to remain vigilant and uphold the spirit of unionism. “The Chancellery’s manipulation cannot erode our determination,” they assert.
Unyielding Determination and Defiant Unity
A resilient resolve is palpable as the magistrates’ union offices express their unwavering commitment to their cause. The leaders emphasize their unwavering stance, underscoring the need for continued solidarity among their ranks.
Navigating the Maze of Agreement
In addition to their call for vigilance, the two union offices emphasize the paramount importance of adhering strictly to the terms outlined in the communiqué numbered 026/Smt-Syamat/2023, issued on August 2nd, 2023. This emphasizes the intricacies of the evolving situation and the importance of a unified front in the face of the Chancellery’s attempts at diversion.
