The Law Reform Commission over the weekend lunched its first quarterly newsletter at the commission’s conference room at Wellington Street in Freetown.
Justice Salamatu Koroma, during the lunching ceremony, said the main reason for the publication of the newsletter was to keep the people informed about the work of the commission as “the written word goes a long way”.
She said, “as the commission is working for the people, the people will need the newsletter so that they will know the commission’s worth”.
Justice Salamatu Koroma said the commission worked very hard to ensure that the people were well informed about the commission.
“The first contribution we need from the general public is feedback so that we will know what the public feels about the commission”, she noted.
The secretary general of the commission, Pamela Davies, said “this first newsletter focuses on projects that have been concluded and those that are ongoing”.
She said they would ensure that they provided commentary on various areas of the law which the commission had reviewed as well as a summary of draft legislation in any particular area under review. This maiden edition presents the mandate of the commission as well as it constitutions and an overview of the activities of the Constitutional Review Commission.
