Sixth Sitting of the Committee on the Judiciary, Public Administration and Local Self-Government

At the sitting held on 14 November, the members of the Committee on the Judiciary, Public Administration and Local Self-Government considered, in principle, the Bill on Preventing Domestic Violence, Bill amending and modifying the Criminal Code, Bill on Organisation and Jurisdiction of Government Authorities in Suppression of Organised Crime, Terrorism and Corruption, and the Bill amending and modifying the Law on Seizure and Confiscation of Proceeds from Crime.


The Committee members accepted, by majority vote, the Committee Chairman’s proposal to conduct a joint debate in principle on all the bills, presented by State Secretary at the Ministry of Justice Radomir Ilic.

Ilic said that all four of the bills are systemically connected, and among them the Bill amending and modifying the Criminal Code has the biggest number of changes, concerning business crime and violations of official duty, with the aim of combating corruption. The Bill is accompanied by two organisational proposals – the Bill on Organisation and Jurisdiction of Government Authorities in Suppression of Organised Crime, Terrorism and Corruption and the Bill on Preventing Domestic Violence, while the Bill amending and modifying the Law on Seizure and Confiscation of Proceeds from Crime concerns amendments stemming from the harmonisation of the national with the EU legislation.

After the debate the Committee members accepted all the bills, in principle, by majority vote.

The sitting chaired by Committee Chairman Petar Petrovic and attended by the following Committee members and deputy members: Slavisa Bulatovic, Djordje Komlenski, Dusan Pavlovic, Sreto Peric, Zarko Micin, Balint Pasztor, Biljana Pantic Pilja, Dr Aleksandar Martinovic, Dr Doc. Mihailo Jokic, Dusan Petrovic, Marko Parezanovic and Miletic Mihajlovic.
