The Governing Council of the People’s Supreme Court delivered the bill to National Assembly President Esteban Lazo on May 11, in accordance with Article 164 of the Constitution of the Republic.

For the elaboration of the rule, a temporary working group, made up of representatives of the Supreme People’s Court, the Office of the Attorney General of the Republic, the Main Military Prosecutor’s Office, the ministries of the Revolutionary Armed Forces, the Interior and Justice , among other institutions, was set up in November 2021.

The Parliament specifies that for the conformation of the bill, an extensive national and international bibliography was analyzed, as well as treaties signed by the Cuban State related to the proposal, and documents resulting from the development of international law.
