Principal Legal Officer in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), Pauline Madanavosa, has been selected as one of 13 participants from around the world to attend a one-month long professional exchange programme.

The programme is sponsored by the United States government un­der the theme “Protecting Women and Children.” The study tour from May 4 to 25, 2019 is a multi-regional programme organised by the US government with the goal to create linkages among professionals in the legal field working to promote inter­national co-operation in strengthen­ing access to justice for women and children.

The participants will meet federal government agencies and private sector organisations that are active­ly engaged in protecting the rights of women and children.

Participants will explore the rule of law and the US justice system with special emphasis on the legal struc­tures in place to protect women and children and identify discrimina­tory practices based on gender and methods of addressing and resolving them with the US social and political and legal sectors.

The ODPP congratulates Ms Mada­navosa on her selection.
