The texts were presented yesterday to Esteban Lazo, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, by the head of the People’s Supreme Court (TSP), Ruben Remigio Ferro, thus complying with the legislative schedule set by the Cuban parliament updated in December 2021.

Referring to the bill of the Penal Code, Ferro highlighted its educational and preventive vocation and the country’s need to have an updated legislation, which provides coverage to new realities that were not sufficiently regulated, such as crimes against the environment, those related to cybersecurity, among others, refers a press release.

The new text expands rights and guarantees of individuals and incorporates the decriminalization of certain figures, as well as the incorporation of sanctions that do not entail detention.

Ferro explained that the Penal Execution Bill is an unprecedented norm in Cuba, which eliminates the current legal dispersion, applies conciliatory methods for a greater harmony in the solution of conflicts and is congruent with concepts contained in international instruments and treaties to which Cuba is signatory.

Lazo informed that the projects complement the process of updating Cuban criminal legislation and, from now on, a process of consultation with specialists, deputies and the population will begin, which is a distinctive feature of the Cuban legislative exercise.

During the eighth ordinary period of sessions of the ninth legislature, in December last year, it was reported that 27 laws and 14 decree-laws are expected to be approved in the next 12 months, in a schedule that responds to the priorities and demands of the country’s development.
