The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) has submitted to the prime minister the organic law on legal procedures for political office holders, after deciding the law is constitutional and requires no changes.

There had been controversy over some clauses regarding conducting trials in absentia and suspension of statutes of limitations when suspects were on the run.

The NLA had passed the organic law in mid July, but the Constitution required that the bill be reviewed by the Constitution Drafting Commission (CDC) and other agencies to ensure it did not violate the charter.

The bill is one of 10 organic laws that need to be to be legislated to accompany the new Constitution promulgated in April.

Passage of the bill has been highly anticipated, as a number of key political office holders are going to trial in the Supreme Court’s Criminal Division for Political Office Holders. The court would need to follow the new procedures as stipulated in the bill
