National

THE Constitutional and Law Reform Commission (CLRC) is determined to provide a high level of independent advice on law reform to the government, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Justice and Attorney-General Davis Steven says.
Steven, who presented the annual reports for 2011 to 2017 to Parliament yesterday, said the CLRC aimed to promote the community and the standing of the law and the legal system of PNG.
He said this was reflected in the data provided in the respective seven annual reports.
“The commission’s vision is for PNG to have and maintain a just, fair and efficient legal system for a peaceful society based on democratic principles and the rule of law and the advancement of the nation’s economic and social interest.
“In order to achieve the vision, the commission prides itself in ensuring that it provides the government with high level independent advice.”
Steven said seven copies of the annual reports contained activities under the leadership and guidance of three successive justice ministers and served by various duly appointed commissioners.
He said in 2014 the commission launched its five-year corporate plan 2014 – 2018.
“In addition to the plan, there was also the creation of five in-house policies relating to publication, HIV/AIDs, Domestic Violence and Housing and Training.
“In 2015, the commission had its first organisational restructure.”
