The Sahel Judicial Cooperation Platform (PCJS) was created in June 2010 in Bamako, Mali. One of the main objectives of the PCJS is to facilitate the transmission and execution of requests for mutual legal assistance and extradition between its member countries (Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal) in particular in the fight against terrorism and transnational organised crime.
