Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Amendment Bill : Portfolio Committee Report on Public Hearings

9. Conclusion

The Bill makes a commendable effort in legislating societal conduct by threatening punishment and trying to suppress anti-social conduct likely to disrupt society. In this regard, the Bill seeks to amend the Criminal Law (Codification and Reform) Act by punishing people whose conduct is deemed to hurt the country’s interests and those who engage in unlawful sexual activity by providing mandatory sentences for rape. The Committee, therefore, believes that passing this Bill after consideration of the views of the people and their recommendations will help to shape the country’s criminal justice system.
