East Timorese Judicial System Monitoring Program (JSMP) promotes the rule of law

The East Timorese law and justice civil society organisation, the Judicial System Monitoring Program, has for many years now, always acted to support the rule of law in East Timor like few other CSO's have managed to do.

JSMP has courageously defended the Constitution, made sound criticism of government agents, and kept a very close eye on the Third Pillar of Democracy, the Courts.

With its continual monitoring and reporting of proceedings in all four District Courts, JSMP has created an enormous body of work that contains an historical record of matters before the Courts in East Timor that is not available any where else.

ETLJB wishes to express profoundest solidarity with JSMP, to draw attention to this most vital CSO and congratulate all those who have worked so hard on the program.
