Information meeting at Permanent Commission for Justice

The Permanent Commission for Justice and Human Rights, led by Eulalia Envo Bela, and moderated by the President of the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, met on 22nd October at the provisional headquarters of the institution in Bata, to evaluate the activities carried out by ethnic groups within the framework of the analysis of the Draft Family Code Law.

Based on this delay, Efua Asangono has asked the legislators to speed up their work in order meet the stipulated deadlines, taking into account that the legal regulation of a marriage does not consist in legislating solely and exclusively for a specific ethnic group, but covers the general situation in accordance with the rituals of each ethnic group in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, each one celebrating with the traditional rules, customs and rites for the group.

The Draft Family Code Law aims to establish a legal regime for the family, minors, adults and the elderly and, as a consequence, will regulate the relationships between its members and with society and State bodies.
