The Director General recently attended an International Workshop on the evolving Role of Prosecutor in domestic and international spheres.
In his presentation which focused on the Independence and Accountability framework for exercising prosecutorial powers the Professor Adekunle reviewed Nigerian constitutional provisions and the extent to which prosecutorial powers which the Constitution granted an Attorney General can be supervised by (a) the courts; or (b) the legislature.
Topics examined by a blend of international criminal law experts and criminologists include -
a) Prosecuting Domestic Violence Cases:
b) Balancing Victim Autonomy and Perpetrator Accountability; Prosecutorial Decisions in cases of child sexual abuse;
c) Decisions to Prosecute: The Challenge of Accountability;
d) The Decision to Prosecute – Are Australian Prosecutors Accountable Enough?
e) Prosecutorial Independence and Effectiveness of the Criminal Justice System;
