The Organic Law Relating to the Constitutional Court

The CNDH, pursuant to Article 13 of the said Royal Decree, also examines the compatibility of “laws and regulations in force with the international treaties relating to human rights and the international humanitarian law which the Kingdom has ratified or acceded to, as well as with the concluding observations and recommendations made by UN bodies on the reports submitted thereto by the Government”.
In accordance with Article 24 of the same law, the CNDH submits to the High Appreciation of His Majesty the King “proposals and thematic reports on all matters that can contribute to better protection and defence of human rights”.
Recognizing the significant impact of an increased access to constitutional justice on the protection, promotion and realization of human rights, the CNDH, as part of the proposals it puts forward to support the process of drafting organic laws, devotes particular and legitimate interest to the issue of constitutional justice1. This interest is further justified by the Council’s “human rights approach” explicitly mentioned in the explanatory statement of the Royal Decree establishing the CNDH.
As the National Dialogue on Justice Reform is an historic opportunity to build, on a collaborative basis, the fundamental principles governing organic and ordinary laws relating to access to justice, the National Human Rights Council, a national institution sitting on the High Committee for the National Dialogue on Justice Reform, seeks to contribute to public debate on this reform through this memorandum on the Organic Law relating to the Constitutional Court.
