Draft Land Law a priority for Parliamentary Committee A

ETLS  26 April 2013 - According to a report in The Dili Weekly on 12 April 2013, Parliamentary Committee A will prioritise three laws in the current sitting of the Parliament including the draft land law.

According to the President of Commission A, MP Carmelita Caetano Moniz, the Land Law is comprised of a package of three pieces of legislation.

“Within this year we will try hard to debate these laws and take them to the plenary for approval,” said MP Moniz.
She added of the three law, the Land Law is the most important to be debated and approved at the National Parliament because there are many land disputes in the country.

Meanwhile CNRT MP Francisco da Costa said these laws must be adequately debated and approved by the parliament so some of the problems that have occurred can be regulated.

“But I don’t know yet about the status of the Land and Property Law and the Anti-Corruption Law because the law I have at the moment on my table is the Municipalities Law,” said MP da Costa.

The MP has concerns with the fact the laws are in Portuguese and urges them to be translated into Tetum so they can be easily understood.

“So we can provide feedback to one another. I think it is very important to approve these laws and laws are important to regulate citizens,” added MP da Costa. Source: The Dili Weekly
