Youths invited to share inputs on legal reform

Young men and women who are interested in legal reform are invited to give their inputs to the advisory committee supervising legal reform.

Chairman of the advisory committee supervising legal reform Dr Bovornsak Uwanno said Friday that he would prefer “people of the future” to play a role in legal reform – an idea which has received the blessing of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha.

He disclosed that the prime minister had told his committee to draw up a list of laws which need to be reformed and to set their priority and to clarify to the public the reasons why the laws must be reformed.

Those who are interested to share their views on legal reform can contact the various committees tasked with proposing reforms or apply in the website of Dr Bovornsak’s committee.

He cited some of the laws which require to be reformed or amended as top priority include laws concerning business and professions which unnecessarily add more burden on the public.

However, Dr Bovornsak made it clear that his panel would not propose to the use of Section 44 of the interim constitution to help in legal reform.
