Criminal code is under study

Lawmakers have assembled a committee to study the country’s criminal code and devise a new one.

The committee includes more than lawmakers. Represented in a meeting Wednesday were the Ministerio de Justicia y Paz, the Ministerio de Seguridad Pública, the Presidencia of the Poder Judicial, the Ministerio Público, the Defensa Pública, the Defensoría de los Habitantes, law professors from the Universidad de Costa Rica, the Colegio de Abogados and a representative from the conference of the justice ministers from Latin America.

The committee plans to meet several times a month to make revisions and report them to the public, a press release said.
