At least 21 MPs sign I Watch petition calling for withdrawal of draft law on economic and financial reconciliation

At least 21 MPs signed the I Watch petition calling for the withdrawal of the draft law on economic and financial reconciliation.

According to the organisation’s website, the list of signatories to the petition includes 10 deputies of the Popular Front, 3 deputies of the Democratic Current, 2 deputies of the Al-Shaab Movement, 2 of the Al-Irada party, 2 of the Free Patriotic Union, a deputy from the Al-Mahaba Current and an independent MP.

In a petition signed Friday by MPs, I Watch reiterated its categorical rejection of the bill, which according to the organisation enshrines the impunity of persons suspected of corruption and contravenes the principle of equality between citizens and functioning of the administration subject to the principles of accountability and transparency (article 15 of the Constitution).

I Watch also pointed out that the Committee on General Legislation in the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) had accelerated review of the draft law on economic and financial reconciliation by approving 7 articles out of a total of 10.

“The HPR has chosen to examine this project in conjunction with war against corruption announced on May 23 by the Chahed government, which has led several opposition MPs to boycott the committee’s sittings to appeal against the constitutionality of the draft lawl,” the organisation added.
