The Code of Military Justice Dahir No. 1-56-270


Under the second paragraph of Article 25 of Dahir on the creation of the National Human Rights Council (CNDH), the latter contributes to “strengthening the building of democracy by fostering broad-based social dialogue and developing any relevant tools and mechanisms to that end”.

The CNDH, pursuant to Article 13 of the said Royal Decree, also examines the compatibility of “laws and regulations in force with the international treaties relating to human rights and the international humanitarian law which the Kingdom has ratified or acceded to, as well as with the concluding observations and recommendations made by UN bodies on the reports submitted thereto by the Government”.

The CNDH, under Article 15 of the same law, encourages and urges all government departments and public authorities concerned to ensure follow-up to the implementation of the concluding observations and recommendations issued by the human rights treaty bodies and other relevant international and regional institutions in fulfilment of the international commitments made by the Kingdom.

In accordance with Article 24 of the said Royal Decree, the CNDH submits for the High Appreciation of His Majesty the King “proposals and thematic reports on all matters that can contribute to better protection and defence of human rights”.

As the National Dialogue on Justice Reform is an historic opportunity to build, on a collaborative basis, the fundamental principles of public policies for reforming this strategic sector, the National Human Rights Council seeks to contribute to public debate on judicial organization through this Memorandum on Royal Decree No. 1-56-270 of 6 Rabii II 1376 A.H. (10 November 1956) establishing the Code of Military Justice, as amended and supplemented.
