Department of Justice and Border Control

The Department of Justice and Border Control is an integral Department within the Government sector. Amongst its functions is to uphold and protect the Constitution of Nauru as well as the rights of its citizens, provide legal advice to the Government and act in the interest of the Republic in civil and criminal litigations. The Department of Justice and Border Control has become one of the largest Departments in the Government sector due to the wide array of responsibilities within its mandate, including legal issues arising out of the operation and administration of the Regional Processing Centre.

 

Our Motto

Serving the Republic with care and pride

 

Vision Statement

We will apply our country's laws with fairness, justice and transparency. We will without fear or favour, provide accurate and timely legal advice, litigation and law and justice information to the Government and people of Nauru. We will also protect the Republic from illegal immigration, serious fraud and from pests and diseases.

 

Mission Statement

DJBC is committed to the highest standards of ethical behaviour, excellence and professionalism in the delivery of legal services to its clients, users and counterparts.
