Ministry of law constitutes sub-committee for Criminal Law Reforms

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Law and Justice, Barrister Dr. Muhammad Farogh Naseem has constituted a sub-committee to oversee the work on criminal reforms.

Sub-committee formed under the chairmanship of Parliamentary Secretary Barrister Maleeka Bukhari in order to expedite the finalization of the draft on Criminal Reforms by the deadline given by Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Farogh Naseem chaired a meeting of the task force on the Criminal Reforms on Tuesday and expressed his displeasure over non-participation by the representatives from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Islamabad.

No objection would be entertained by any province, after the finalization of the draft in case of continuous absence of a representative from that province, he said.

He ordered that fresh notices be issued to the Prosecutor General Offices, Home Departments and Police Departments of all the provinces for the input.

Farogh Naseem also said permanent representatives from each province must be deputed for the task so it could be completed in time.
