September 16 2004

On Monday 13th September a special awareness workshop on Private Associations and Corporations Law (PACL) was inaugurated by Mr. Ali Saleh Abdullah, Deputy Minister of Social Affairs. He stressed that the PACL enactment was due to joint efforts of the government and civil society organizations, and that awareness of the law is a very important matter.
The workshop covers 12 associations and organizations that arrange voluntary and humanitarian services.
It is note-worthy that many associations do not abide by the PACL, issued in 2001, which embraces 88 articles distributed among 8 chapters. The executive by-law of the PACL was issued by the Cabinet decision No. 129 for the year 2004. The by-law comprises 139 articles in three chapters.
