The Criminal Reforms Committee recently constituted by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has been urged by lawyers and former judges to ensure diversity and transparency in its functioning by disclosing details regarding the terms of its reference and how it proposes to function.
A letter signed by lawyers, academics, and former judges and bureaucrats working with the criminal justice system has raised concerns that the present Committee "lacks diversity both in terms of the social identity of the members, as well as their professional background and experience."
The five-member Committee was constituted earlier this year under the Chairmanship of National Law University, Delhi Vice-Chancellor Prof (Dr) Ranbir Singh.
