Following the MoU signing, Dr Marri said, prosecutors from both sides will exchange visits, to benefit from each other's experience in investigation and judiciary, as well as, exchange experiences, as Qatar has managed to replace registry with electronic investigation - an experiment that will be transferred to Sudan.

He lauded the establishment of an independent public prosecutor in Sudan, stressing that, it is a step in the right direction, towards the support of the state institutions, the law and the independence of the judiciary from the executive and legislative branches.

On his part, the Sudanese attorney-general said, the MoU will promote joint training of prosecutors, in investigation and knowledge sharing.

"We are keen on knowledge sharing and this MoU augurs well for relations between the two countries in the legal fields," said the Sudanese attorney-general.

Dr Marri also met with State Minister at the Sudanese Ministry of Justice, Tahani Ali Ahmed Toral-Dabba, and discussed means of advancing cooperation between the two countries.
