Ministry of Justice (Turkmenistan)
The Ministry of Justice of Turkmenistan (Turkmen: Türkmenistanyň adalat ministrligi) regulates the activities of the country's justice bodies. Since its inception in 1993 (two years after Turkmenistan declared independence from the Soviet Union), the ministry provides legal support to the state, and performs other tasks assigned by the Law of Turkmenistan to ensure the protection of the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the Turkmen citizen. It was originally established on 6 September 1972 as the Justice Ministry of the Turkmen SSR. In 2003, President Saparmurat Niyazov ordered the Ministry of Justice to be renamed as the Ministry of Adalat. With Adalat being the Turkic word for justice, the change in terminology was intended to convey fairness, honor, and order within the ministry's affairs. The Ministry of Justice was also given new responsibilities that included inventorying all state-owned and private properties and overseeing the lawyers, notaries, and civil-registration offices in Turkmenistan.
