1119 NS

The 8th meeting of the Legal Translation Commission’s Working Committee and Working Bodies was held yesterday morning at the Union Attorney-General’s Office.
At the meeting, Chairperson Dr Thida Oo of the Legal Translation Commission said the Legal Translation Commission Law was enacted by Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Law No. 25 in 2015 and the commission was formed in 2016.
The laws enacted by the Indian Parliament until Myanmar pre-independenc era in 1947 were followed in Myanmar. The Legal Translation Commission Law was promulgated to translate 81 existing laws from English into Myanmar. The commission translated and approved a total of 26 laws and published up to 8 books. The Public Property Protection Act and the Court Fees Act approved by the 7th meeting have recently been published. Plans are underway to distribute it as Book No 8.
The State Administration Council reorganized the commission with 15 people by Order No. 51/2021 on 2 March. The Union Attorney-General has become the Chairperson of the commission and legal experts as the members. Dr Thida Oo added that the Legal Translation Commission is separate from the translation of laws, which is the primary responsibivlity of the Union Attorney-General’s Office. Legal translation work is a subject that needs to be considered in a very subtle and wide-ranging way.
The meeting will be held for two days and will discuss and approve the Negotiable Instruments Act and the Land Customs Act. — MNA
