MOTION

BUSINESS OF THE SENATE

THE MINISTER OF LEGAL AFFAIRS: May I seek leave of the Senate that Orders of the Day Numbers 2 to 17 be considered together and disposed of at the same time. Let me explain Madam President, I had a meeting with the Parliamentary Legal Committee and considered the issues which arise from these Orders of the Day. I am going to read a Joint Statement that we have agreed upon as to which are to be upheld and which is not valid.

Motion put and agreed to.

MADAM PRESIDENT: Order! Order! May you please sit down.

COMMITTEE STAGE

ADVERSE REPORT BY THE PARLIAMENTARY LEGAL COMMITTEE ON STATUTORY INSTRUMENT NO. 55 OF 2012 - GWERU (INCORPORATED AREAS) (RENT, SERVICE AND SUPPLEMENTARY CHARGES) (AMENDMENT) BY-LAWS, 2012.

THE MINISTER OF JUSTICE AND LEGAL AFFAIRS: With the leave of the Senate I will read the Joint Statement that I signed with the Parliamentary Legal Committee. The Joint Statement is relating to Orders of the Day 2 to 17. I understand that procedurally, I will be required to read this Statement for each order of the day, but I will find a way of shortening the procedure so that we finish today.

Madam Chair, the Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs and the Parliamentary Legal Committee met on Tuesday the 17th of July 2012 over the adverse reports the Committee tabled before this august Senate.

The meeting discussed the reservations raised by the Committee concerning Statutory Instrument 25,28,30,40,41,44,55,58,62,63,66,71,73,78,90 and 93 of 201. To address the Committee's concern about the need to protect the public from the abuse of penalty creating or fees charging provisions of Statutory instruments by councils or council officials, the Committee and the Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs resolved that:

Where a council sets a tariff of fees for any inspection carried out or service provided or any matter or thing done by the council under the Urban Councils Act [Chapter 29:15] (Third Schedule, Paragraph 4(1), such tariff will be referred to as a "fee or charge" instead of a "penalty or fine" for the avoidance of doubt. The tightening of the language will clarify the distinction between a tariff of fees and criminal penalties. If any person disputes his/her alleged liability to pay a fee of charge, the individual approaches the civil courts for remedy.

While the Urban Councils Act permits the levying of fines up to level 5, statutory instruments will mirror the due process language used in the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act [Chapter 9:07]: that levying of deposit fines must comply with all the requirements of Section 356 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act.

In the interests of good governance and the rule of law, a separate statutory instrument to amend Statutory Instrument 225 of 1997 (on the appointment of "prescribed officers" who can demand and receive deposit fines) will be drafted to list municipal "uniformed employees" as "prescribed officers". Such listing will confer on municipal "uniformed employees" powers to demand and receive deposit fines under section 356 of the Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act.

As such, the Committee and the Minister of Justice and Legal Affairs agreed that while statutory Instruments 71, 90 and 93 of 2012 are invalid (insofar as they create criminal offences and stipulate penalties for such offences in excess of what is permitted by the Urban Councils Act), the Attorney General's office will amend the ultra vires provisions of Statutory Instruments 71, 90 and 93 of 2012. Statutory Instruments 25,28,30,40,41,44,55,58,62,63,66,73,78,90 and 93 are therefore legal, but will be amended taking into account the above listed considerations to better protect the public.

In conclusion, I move that the Senate resolves that the criminal penalties contained in Statutory instruments 71,90, and 93 of 2012 are ultra vires the Urban Councils Act for being in excess of the maximum level of criminal penalties allowed by that Act to be imposed under By-laws.

Senate resumed.
