Law, justice and integrity are key cornerstone of development, human rights, peace and security. On the other hand the rule of law can only be established and maintain when all individuals, organizations and institution, both in the public and private sectors are accountable to laws that are publicly promulgated, equally enforced and adjudicated through an institutional framework governed by the principles of transparency, integrity, justice and accountability.
