Discussion on Union Legal Supporting Group’s six-month report
Later, Daw Khin Hnin Thit of Padaung constituency, Daw Nan Than Than Lwin of Hpa-an constituency, U Mya Sein of Dagon Myothit (Seikkan) constituency, U Nyan Lin of Shwepyitha constituency, U Khin Cho of Hlaingbwe constituency, U Kyaw Myo Min of Monyo constituency, U Kan Oo of Salin constituency, U Win Win of Minbu constituency and Daw Myat Thida Tun of Mon State constituency 5 had a discussion in support of the six-month work report of the Union Legal Supporting Group.
In her discussion, Daw Khin Hnin Thit said the Union Legal Supporting Group is the main requirement for the country to know the actual situation. If the group can do its work well, it will be a force that will benefit the people and the country. There is a requirement to provide legal assistance directly to the poor people who need it and the group needs to be a strong one that can provide legal matters covering the entire country.
U Mya Sein of Dagon Myothit (Seikkan) constituency said the group was formed with the aim to support the work of not only the courts, detention centres, jails, police personnel, attorneys and advocates, but also the plaintiffs, suspects, witnesses related to legal cases and is a group that’s required for the people.
U Nyan Lin of Shwepyitha constituency suggested that since the group is a union-level group, reforming it with deputy minister-level officials will enable it to conduct work more quickly, effectively and correctly, making it a more dependable entity for the people.
U Win Win of Minbu constituency, meanwhile, suggested that the next six-month report of the Union Legal Supporting Group should include the progress of its works and findings. He added further that once the legal support groups are formed at the state/region, district and township level, this information should be made known to the people so that timely support can be provided to people who are in need of legal support.
The fifth day of the ninth regular session of the Second Pyidaungsu Hluttaw is scheduled to be held on 1 August, it is learnt.
