The Federal Government has started reviewing the proposed Special Crimes Court Bill 2016, prepared by the Prof. Itse Sagay-led Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, in preparation for its transmission to the National Assembly.

This was confirmed  by the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami (SAN), whose office received the proposed bill from PACAC on behalf of the Federal Government.

The Special Crimes Court Bill, 2016, proposes to create courts that will exclusively handle corruption cases and others, including narcotic, human trafficking, kidnapping, cybercrime, money laundering and other related offences.

The offences under the existing legal framework are being prosecuted by some law enforcement agencies, including the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, before the Federal High Court, state High Courts and the Federal Capital Territory High Court.

The intention of the bill is to ensure speedy trial of  cases.
