The Government is working to revise and modernise several pieces of legislation during the 2021/22 fiscal year.
This was disclosed by Minister of Justice, Hon. Delroy Chuck, during his contribution to the 2021/22 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 4.
“I am working assiduously on these legislation and all the Ministries are being contacted almost on a weekly basis to see where the legislation are, and in this fiscal year I have no doubt that we will have many more pieces of legislation coming to this Parliament,” he said.
Some of the laws that will be revised include the Judicature (Parish Courts) (Amendment) Act and Judicature (Appellate Jurisdiction) (Amendment) Act, to grant limited right of appeal to the Prosecution; the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Act, which will expand the powers of the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Board to consider applications for expungement; and the Mediation Act.
