The Council for Legal and Judicial Reform held its annual policy review on Wednesday in Phnom Penh. Suong Leang Hay, deputy secretary general, said: “The general secretariat is currently inspecting the reformed Ministry of Justice law before it is submitted for approval by the Council of Ministers.” Ministries will soon hand the council recommendations on law reform within their jurisdiction. “As the reform process unfolds over the next five years, we plan to create a commission that will monitor the observance of the laws on the part of government officials and civil society groups,” Suong Leang Hay said.
