The Maltese Government prepared Bills implementing concepts for reforms and on 23 June 2020 requested the opinion of the Venice Commission on those Bills.
As part of preparation of the opinion, the Commission organised a series of virtual meetings with the Maltese authorities. Most recently, on 1 September, the rapporteurs exchanged views with the Minister of Justice, Equality and Governance. Other meetings were held on 3 and 4 September 2020.
The adoption of the opinion is planned during the October 2020 plenary session of the Venice Commission.
