NCLW executive bureau in action


The executive bureau of the National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) held yesterday its regular meeting chaired by Claudine Aoun Roukoz to conclude the formation of specialized committees on women and benefit from the service of volunteer counsellors when needed. Participants reviewed various initiatives vis-à-vis the repeal of Article 522 of the Penal Code and attendant Articles 505 and 518, reiterating NCLW’s determination to submit a draft bill inclusive of all articles and provisions related to the rights and protection of underage girls. To note, NCLW has started working on the draft in consultation with involved civil society groups and governmental institutions. The bureau also deliberated a mechanism of cooperation with the ministry of state for women’s affairs in service of women. (Al Diyar, September 7, 2017)
