Introduction
Mr. Speaker Sir, the Parliamentary Legal Committee considered the Criminal Law (Codification and Law Reform) Bill, [HB 10, 2003], within the framework of its mandate and regrets to report that it found the provisions of clauses 22, 33, 37, 46 and 182(2) of the Bill to be in violation of the Bill of Rights contained in the Constitution of Zimbabwe. Your committee in consequence came to the unanimous conclusion that these clauses would, if enacted, be in contravention of the Declaration of Rights of the Constitution.
