Attorney General

The prosecutory function rests with the Attorney General, who holds the position of supreme public prosecutor. The Attorney General occupies a cabinet-level post separate from that of the Minister of Justice, both of whom reported directly to the President. The Attorney General's Office includes 27 provincial-level prosecutors' offices and 296 district prosecutors' offices. The public prosecutor's principal functions are to examine charges of felonious conduct or misdemeanors brought by individuals or other parties, and then either to dismiss a charge or to refer it for trial to the state court having jurisdiction. The prosecutor's office is also responsible for presenting the case against the accused in court and for executing the sentence of the court.
