The Minister of Justice, Keeper of the Seals, Abdelrachid Tabbi, confirmed, on Wednesday, in Algiers, the President of the Republic’s keenness to embody the effort to generalize digitization, as it is a strategic option and a pivotal factor in combating the phenomenon of counterfeiting.
Tabi explained, during his response to the concerns of the representatives raised during the discussion session of the draft law on combating counterfeiting and the use of forgery in the National People’s Assembly, that the President of the Republic “is keen on embodying the effort to achieve comprehensive digitization for all sectors, and he has given strict instructions in this regard and set deadlines for embodying this strategic endeavor, which is… “A pivotal factor in confronting the phenomenon of forgery that affects the social fabric.”
He highlighted that digitization has several advantages, the most prominent of which is contributing to preserving the integrity of administrative documents, ensuring the sources of their issuance, and transparency of transactions, noting that work is underway to give each administrative document its own number in order to protect it from attempts at forgery.
Tabi attributed the allocation of a law to combat the phenomenon of forgery and the use of forgery and its failure to include it within the Penal Code, to the nature of this law, which includes – as he said – preventive provisions such as obliging departments and bodies to use digitization.
