At a meeting of Dr. Morteza Damanpak Jami with the President of the Supreme Court of Portugal, the two sides highlighted the collaboration between the legal and judicial systems of the two countries.

At the meeting, which took place Wednesday September 27th at the Supreme Court of Justice in Lisbon, Ambassador presented a report on the status and structure of the Judicial System of Iran and its relationship with other bodies of powers within the Islamic Republic of Iran's political system and how it operates. During the meeting, areas of judicial cooperation between Iran and Portugal were also discussed and the views were exchanged.

Dr. Damanpak Jami stated that in order to understand the legal systems of countries better, we should recognize the principle of cultural diversity and respect for the social values of different societies, and avoid imposing the values and rules of one society on another. He considered dialogue and interaction as a means to achieve mutual understanding, transfer of experience and cooperation as the best way to tackle national and transnational crimes that currently threaten the social and psychological security of different societies.

Taking to account the historical ties and cultural commonality between Iran and Portugal, the Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran suggested the creation of cooperative relationships between the judicial systems of the two countries, especially in the fields of counterterrorism and transnational organized crime (TOC), drug trafficking, extradition and bilateral dialogue on human rights to complement and reinforce the existing relations friendly cooperation between the two countries in various areas.

Recalling the long-standing cultural and historical ties between the two countries, and emphasizing the necessity for understanding the principle of cultural diversity, Dr. António Piçarra, President of the Portuguese Supreme Court, also welcomed the suggestion to establish cooperation between the judicial system of the two countries and to exchange experiences and best practices in this regard.

It is worth noting that the Supreme Court is the highest judicial body in Portugal and the President of the Supreme Court has the authority to try the President of Portugal, the President of the Assembly of the Republic and the Prime Minister of Portugal for crimes committed during the exercise of their office, as well as to try crimes committed by the members of the Supreme Court, of the Courts of Appeal or Public Prosecutors, to harmonize rulings by setting uniform jurisprudence, and hear appeals in matters of law. The President of the Supreme Court is elected by and from among the judges of the court.
