Camagüey, June 8 - Raising the quality of the provision of services and the legal culture in the population constitute tasks of the highest priority for this sector, as revealed during the celebration in Camagüey for Legal Worker Day in Cuba.
Teresa Hinojosa Torres, president of the Provincial Board of Directors of the organization that groups these professionals, explained that other priorities are constant preparation, improvement, active participation in updating the Cuban economic model, in strengthening the institutional framework and legal order.
Scientific societies, represented by their Chapters, contribute to these purposes, inspired by the legislative process to make the laws coincide with the reality of the country, derived from the Constitution and in pursuit of the strengthening of socialist democracy.
Hinojosa Torres assured that the debates in the consultation of the draft laws presented by the Supreme People's Court have been enriching, with a high content of legal theory and practice, which will be excellent references to perfect the aforementioned documents.
In the same way, he added that the jurists have organized themselves for when the referendum on the Family Code is called, to carry it out with quality and efficiency.
At the event, Ariel Santana Santiesteban, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba, and Yoseily Góngora López, governor, gave recognition to the Union of Jurists in Camagüey, for being creditor, for the sixteenth consecutive year, of the status of the most outstanding Province.
Several grassroots delegations were also distinguished, which constitute the space par excellence in which the most important activities of the organization take place; as well as different Provincial Chapters that promote the preparation.
The Young Jurist Award was received by Lourdes Lilian Chacón Fernández and Alfredo Soler del Sol, while the latter was an Outstanding Jurist at the national level for his perseverance and dedication to multiple responsibilities.
In addition, several researchers were honored for their contributions to the scientific literature, and others such as Arlet Guerra and Yolanda Medina, who stood out in the confrontation with COVID-19.
The act for Legal Worker's Day took place in Camagüey 156 years after Ignacio Agramonte defended his Degree Thesis to obtain a degree in Law.
The ceremony on June 8 took place at the headquarters of the Provincial People's Court, a building where the Royal Court of Port-au-Prince, the center of the island's jurisdictional decisions at that time, held sessions more than two centuries ago.
