Extracts from the press conference by Stephen White, Head of the Eujust Lex Mission for Iraq

24 views

European Union Integrated Rule of Law Mission for Iraq (EUJUST LEX) is a civilian crisis management operation under the auspices of the European Security and Defence Policy. Following an invitation to the EU by the then Prime Minister of the elected Iraqi Interim Government, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, to commence training activities for Iraqi rule of law professionals, the operational phase of the EUJUST LEX mission started on 1 July 2005. During a meeting with the Head of mission on 18 June 2006, the current Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki also extended his welcome to and support for the mission and its activities. In March 2005, Stephen White was appointed Head of mission of EUJUST LEX. On 17 December 2009, the Council underlined the strong continued commitment of the European Union to support the development of the rule of law in Iraq, specifically by providing training and mentoring in the area of the police, the judiciary and the penitentiary system. The Council welcomed the extension of EUJUST LEX for one year (until 30 June 2010) and its first pilot activities on Iraqi territory. Building on the success of these in-country activities, the mission is stepping up its engagement to support the rule of law in Iraq through further planned work. Stephen White, Head of the Eujust Lex Mission for Iraq, held this press conference.
