The Shura Council convened its regular weekly session at the Tamim bin Hamad Hall yesterday, chaired by Speaker of the Council H.E. Hassan bin Abdullah Al Ghanim.

During the meeting, the council scrutinised a draft law proposing amendments to certain provisions of the Penal Code as stipulated in Law No. 11 of 2004, which had been referred to it by the esteemed government.

The Council resolved to delegate the examination of the draft law to the Legal and Legislative Affairs Committee for thorough review and the subsequent submission of a report to the Council.

Additionally, the Council endorsed a draft law aimed at repealing Law No. 2 of 1991, which imposed fees for obtaining certificates issued by the Ministry of Interior and its affiliated agencies, and Law No. 7 of 1991, which imposed similar fees for certificates issued by the Ministry of Defense.

This decision followed a comprehensive review of the report provided by the Internal and External Affairs Committee.

Furthermore, the Shura Council assessed the report detailing its delegation's involvement in a roundtable discussion on the Arab Declaration for Combating all Forms of Violence against Women and Girls, conducted via video conference last December.

Lastly, the Council reviewed the participation of its delegation in the 51st Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) Bureau Meeting, also held through video conferencing in December.
