Two days ago, in Adis Abbaba, President of Ethiopia’s Supreme Court, Meaza Ashenafi, joined USAID Deputy Administrator, Bonnie Glick, and U.S. Ambassador to Ethiopia, Michael Raynor, to launch the new USAID “Feteh” (Justice) program in Ethiopia.
Feteh will provide technical support to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) and the Supreme Court’s efforts to expand their independent decision-making and oversight capacity. In particular, Feteh will work on strengthening the overall capacity of AGO directorates and agencies, and provide technical support to the AGO advisory council and secretariat for their ongoing legislative initiatives. The project will also support the Federal Supreme Court of Ethiopia in its efforts to strengthen commercial benches, revise various framework laws – including the Law on Judicial Administration and the Law on Federal Courts – and enhance its case flow management to improve efficiency.
