Deputy of the Senate of the Parliament of the Republic of Kazakhstan Nurlan Beknazarov took part in the international scientific and practical conference “Criminal and Criminal Procedure Codes of the Republic of Kazakhstan in a new constitutional dimension.”
In his speech, the deputy spoke about the work carried out by the Senate on legislative support for the constitutional reforms being carried out in the country, emphasizing that, together with government bodies and experts in the field of law, the Chamber will continue to ensure the implementation of legislative changes that are relevant to society.
“The head of state instructed the Ministry of Justice to conduct an audit of the Criminal and Criminal Procedure Legislation in order to “get rid of everything that actually does not work or obstructs justice.” In April of this year, the government submitted to the Mazhilis a bill aimed at optimizing criminal legislation. Today, members of Parliament together with legal experts are considering this bill,” the senator said.
The conference was attended by Chairmen and judges of the Constitutional and Supreme Courts, representatives of the Prosecutor General's Office, the Ministries of Justice and Internal Affairs, as well as leading experts in the field of law from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Belarus, Great Britain, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Uzbekistan and the OSCE.
In conclusion, the senator thanked the organizers for holding an event of such a scale, and also noted that this dialogue platform will allow conference participants to constructively discuss issues of improving the Criminal and Criminal Procedure Codes, exchange opinions and identify optimal ways to improve their effectiveness.
