In addition, they have been urged to practice rights under their capacity and that they should not abuse the power entrusted to them, but rather act in accordance to the law.
The call was made by the Chairman of the Commission on Human Rights and Good Governance, Judge Amiri Manento over the weekend in Dar es Salaam.
"I urge judges and magistrates to operate justly especially when delivering e judgment in criminal cases ... it is very sad when a judge / magistrate sets the date of judgment only to adjourn it to another date, it's not right," he said.
"When the date of judgment to the accused of a criminal offence is set and then becomes constantly postponed, it raises many questions and potentially affects the psychology of the accused...," said Judge Manento.
He was addressing attendants to the launch of several human rights resource stations in the city where he noted that the launch commemorates that of a five year special plan focused on supervision of human rights and good governance
At the human rights resource stations, various stakeholders were their to give trainings on the subject, including the Court of Tanzania, Office of the Attorney General, The Secretariat of Ethics and Public Leaders, United Nations Tanzania Office, Commission on Human Rights and Good governance, Ministry of Constitutional and Legal Affairs and Non Governmental Organisation, TAWLA and WLAC.
