Ministry of Justice
|Ministry of Justice|
|Current Head: Açafat del Val|
|Function: To advise the government on the law, defend it from suit, and to prosecute misdeeds among the citizenry.|
The Ministry of Justice provides legal advice and assistance to the government as requested. The holder of the portfolio of this ministry is known as the Avocat-Xheneral (Attorney-General). He and his subordinate officers prosecutes actions brought by the government and defend the government against actions brought against it in the Kingdom's courts. The Attorney-General is sometimes known by the abbreviations "A-X" or "A-G".
The post of the Avocat-Xheneral is currently held by Açafat del Val.
Despite having existed for a long time (Ar Päts records Robert J. Murphy as Thomas Buffone's Attorney-General in 1993), the post has only been permanently considered of Cabinet level from 1999 onwards. The positions of "Justice Minister" and "Attorney-General" are generally understood to be one and the same, but the Ministry of Justice has no jurisdiction over, for example, the administration of the courts and the practice of law, which are generally understood to be duties of equivalent positions around the world.
The Attorney-General also briefly held the position of Minister for Law Reform in 2011.
