The Ministry of Justice works with the 14 Overseas Territories to deliver justice assistance.

Document

Detail

The Ministry of Justice works closely with the 14 Overseas Territories (OTs) to deliver justice assistance in response to requests from individual Territory Governments. Work to date has included training on probation and parole to justice officials in the Caribbean, hosting a bi-annual justice seminar for the OT Governors and accepting high risk prisoners to serve their sentences in prisons in the UK.

With the publication of the white paper the MoJ will consolidate the justice assistance  delivered in the Territories from across the Ministry of Justice.

In addition to continuing to respond to the Territories’ needs, we will begin to look at where we can put in place a framework for building longer term justice assistance networks.
