Personal Status Court --> Tribunal de statut personnel

NB: Tribunal du statut de(?) personnel -> une erreur d'impression, de frappe - just a typo? Des preuves n'existent que pour "Tr. de statut personnel"! (Ergo: note explicative sans traduction!)

[ibid: 4.5. Judicial Organization
"... The Charienne Justice applies the Islamic law is made by the "wheelbarrows" (wise). They are divided into districts and administrative centers in the districts of the capital. The Grand Qadi of Djibouti is, moreover, an appellate judge. The Charienne Justice had exclusive jurisdiction to the only people of the Muslim faith, in matters of inheritance, marriage celebration, divorce, and alimony and child custody. However, the Act of June 30, 2003 in family matters has replaced the Sharia courts by a State Court. ...]

"The 2003 act on personal status courts establishes personal status courts of first instance to replace the sharia courts that existed in every district and regional capital."
