Govt to set up task force on institutional reforms – Free Malaysia Today

PETALING JAYA: The government plans to set up a special task force on institutional reforms.
Law and institutional reform minister Azalina Othman Said said the aim of this task force would be to evaluate them before presenting the proposals to the Cabinet, Berita Harian reported.
“The task force will also engage with and seek proposals from the public and other parties,” she was quoted as saying.
Azalina said she would also propose to the Cabinet to set up a law commission independent of the Attorney-General’s Chambers.
She said the independent law commission would then have the freedom to engage experts in the legal field and other areas, such as in sociology, science and business, to propose law reforms to the government.
Azalina also gave her assurance that the government would continue the previous administration’s efforts to abolish the mandatory death penalty.
Separately, she said Putrajaya intended to empower Suhakam by amending the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia Act 1999 to grant it greater functions and responsibilities.
This was necessary to allow the commission to promote and uphold human rights more effectively.
“The amendments will include allowing Suhakam to appoint people from various backgrounds, with the appropriate experience and expertise in human rights, to the commission,” she said.
