Monaco’s Code Update Commission has resumed its activities on the initiative of the Directorate of Judicial Services, meeting in plenary session on April 9 under the chairmanship of Laurent Anselmi, Director of Judicial Services.
Created by Sovereign Decision of May 26, 1954, this Commission, in which the different actors of the Monegasque law are represented, works on codification in the long term. Representatives of the three constitutional functions – legislative (National Council), executive (Directorate of Legal Affairs, Prince’s Government) and judicial (Headquarters Jurisdictions, Public Prosecutor’s Office, Bar Association) are represented and eminent specialists are also included.
This first session identified the aims of those present. After an initial exchange of views, two working groups were set up, the first dealing with civil procedure, the second with criminal procedure.
These groups will need to work on the development of provisions on a specific list of technical issues for submission to the next plenary meeting of the Commission in early autumn. Ultimately, the goal is to draft “turnkey” legislation to initiate a legislative procedure facilitated by the specialised work done upstream by the commission.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
Come the next academic year, the ISM will be offering an exciting new diploma for students wishing to pursue career-related learning.
