The Legal Translation Commission holds the ninth meeting yesterday.

The 9th meeting of the Legal Translation Commission’s Working Committee and Working Bodies was held yesterday at the Ministry of Legal Affairs.
During the meeting, Commission Chairperson Dr Thida Oo said the Legal Translation Commission Law was enacted by Pyidaungsu Hluttaw as Law No. 25 in 2015.
The laws enacted by the Indian Parliament until Myanmar pre-independence era in 1947 were followed in Myanmar, and the Legal Translation Commission Law was promulgated to translate 81 existing laws from English into Myanmar and the commission was formed in 2016. Moreover, the translation work of the commission is separate from the translation work of the regular laws of the Union Attorney General Office.
The State Administration Council reorganized the Legal Translation Commission under Notification No 51/2021 on 2 March with 15 experts while Union Attorney-General Dr Thida Oo was appointed as a chairperson of the commission.
Although the commission arranged to hold the meeting in August, it failed to do so due to the outbreak of COVID-19. The online meeting was held to maintain a good drive in the translation sector.
All the commission members attended the 8th meeting held on 20 and 21 May in person and discussed the Land Customs Act and the Negotiable Instruments Act.
This is the second meeting after serving as commission chairperson and also approved the Myanmar translation of The Penal Code with order No 7/2021 on 16 September 2021 and sent to the Ministry of Information to publish as Book No (9).
The commission chairperson also appreciated the efforts of working committees, working bodies and commission members and urged them to work together in translating the laws without any delays.
She then said of 81 laws, the commission has translated 26 laws so far and published the books from No 1 to 8. Twelve laws are translated by the working bodies led by the working committee members and there are only 38 laws for the Legal Translation Commission to translate.
She also sought suggestions regarding the approval of the Legal Representative Suits Act and the Arbitration (Protocol and Convention) Act during the meeting. — MNA
