Event Title: Senate Special Committee on Law Reforms

Event Date: 2019-03-20

Senate Special Committee on Law Reforms in its meeting on Wednesday discussed the Illegal Disposition Act 2005 and proposed making the definition of land grabbers clearer in the law as it affects not just the land grabbers but also individual cases and those who buy land thinking they have fulfilled all lawful requirements. The Committee decided to examine in detail the scope of the law and to study the relevant judgements of Supreme Court before suggesting any amendments.

The meeting was held under the Chairmanship of Senator Farooq H. Naek here at the Parliament House on Wednesday and was attended among others by Senators Rana Maqbool Ahmed, Azam Khan Swati, former Senator Anwar Bhinder, and officials from law and justice.

The Committee also discussed Guardian and Wards Act, 1861, Muslim Family Law Ordinance, 1961, Succession Act, 1888 and decided to call Council of Islamic Ideology in the next meeting in relation to matters of child custody and maintenance money given to wife after divorce.

The Committee also discussed the problems created by complicated and long hierarchy of the judicial system and called for removing barriers and unnecessary details in the system.
