Legal System

Mozambique’s legal system is based on civil law and thus legislation is the primary source of law. Courts base their judgements on legislation and there is no binding precedent as understood in common law systems. The court structure is based on a three tier system comprising of the district, province and supreme courts. Serious criminal cases are tried in the Supreme Court, which is also the final court of appeal. Smaller courts include the Administrative Court, the courts-martial, customs, maritime and labour courts. Supreme Court judges are either appointed by the president or elected by parliament. The death penalty was abolished under the 1990 constitution.
