The Peruvian Congress approved on Thursday the creation of a Special Public Safety Committee responsible for monitoring and evaluating the design and implementation of public policies aimed to reduce and eliminate crime in the country.
The committee will be made up of Congressmen Teofilo Gamarra, Amado Romero, Rosa Mavila, Wilder Ruiz, Octavio Salazar, Carlos Tubino and Maria Luisa Cuculiza.
Fernando Andrade, Jose Leon, Luis Iberico, Gustavo Rondon and Renzo Rengifo complete the committee.
The bill, which was modified during the debate, proposes that the special committee evaluates criminal law, criminal procedure and regulates public safety.
It will also propose legislative initiatives aimed to implement the necessary improvements to achieve the effectiveness of the rules by respecting fundamental human rights.
The committee should coordinate its work with the National Council for Public Safety, the regional and local governments, the Judiciary, the civil society and other public institutions related to fundamental rights and internal order.
