Department of Justice & Attorney General has commended the current Minister for Justice Bryan Kramer for setting a record in the number of submissions presented to Government in the last 12 months.  

While addressing the National Coordination Mechanism (NCM) members and other guests who attended the launch of ‘The Attorney General’s Law Journal’ recently, the Attorney General and Secretary for Justice Dr Eric Kwa made these remarks.

“We have checked the records and confirmed that this is the first time in the history of the department we have had more submissions and decisions taken up to the cabinet since Minister Kramer took office,” he said.

Dr Kwa said it was record breaking that DJAG have delivered more submissions to government than ever before.

“A non-lawyer leading us in trying to push for reforms within the law and justice sector; we truly appreciate that. I’ve been in the office for three years and this year has been a very hectic one with Minister pushing us to support government in every way we can,” he said.

Dr Kwa said it was also history making for one Minister to get a total number of six legislations to the Parliament within12 months only.

“This is a huge achievement for us with the number of policies approved by the cabinet which we are right now implementing half of these policies.”

Meanwhile Minister Kramer, responded by acknowledging DJAG and the Law & Justice Sector for their efforts in working with him to make all these achievable.

The following Bills were passed in Parliament this year under the leadership of Minister Kramer;

  1. Controlled Substance Bill 2021
  2. Dangerous Drugs Amendment Bill 2021
  3. Lawyers (Amendment) Bill 2021
  4. Electronic Transaction Bill 2021
  5. Attorney General (Amendment) Bill 2021; and
  6. Public Solicitors Bill 2021
