Cabinet nod to make amendments in the Penal Code

The Cabinet of Ministers had approved the proposal made by the Minister of Justice and Prison Reforms Thalatha Athukorale to make amendments to the Penal Code.

Accordingly, some words and phrases of the Penal Code, which have been amended several times during the colonial period, have become incompatible with the adoption of the Republican Constitution of 1972.

The amendment bill was prepared by the Legal Draftsman to replace the outdated words and phrases in the Government Gazette and thereafter to be tabled in Parliament for approval.
