Law amendment preventing jailing of mother rejected


The Parliamentary Administration and Justice Committee chaired by MP George Adwan, rejected yesterday the draft law to amend Article 1003 of the Code of Civil Procedure, preventing the imprisonment of the mother sentenced to hand over her underge child. The Committee, after reviewing the explanatory statements and the justice ministry’s standpoint, noticed that enactment of the proposal, as per equality standards, requires that the father not be jailed for violating relevant provisions as well as the alimony provisos, which could undermine the implementation of similar judiciary rulings. Recalling, that the above draft bill was submitted on November 13, 2018, by lawmaker Paula Yacoubian. ( (An Nahar, August 7, 2019)
