Justice is a public service to which the Constitution and law have given a special role. The independence of the judiciary is justified by its mission : to insure the respect of individual liberties. Faced with the inability of the judiciary to effectively fulfill this role as soon as a reason of State dictates otherwise, it is necessary for a non institutional organization to replace the deficient institutional structures and to give the judges the force necessary to fully perform their duties : this is one of the justifications for the existence of the « Syndicat de la Magistrature » (judges union).

In this regard, the union has the right particularly by the positions it takes, to show the country that not all judges are controlled by the Government and the economic forces that support it. The union has the obligation to work for pluralistic justice, representative, as much as possible, of the various trends which exist in the country.
