"Police Record" To Be Reactivated

Law & LawyersOn Tuesday afternoon the Cabinet Council approved amendments to articles of Law 69 of 27 December 2007 which created the Directorate of Judicial Investigation (DIJ) in the National Police, the departments of Criminology Services and the Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences. The reform allows for the use of a criminal record that, at present, is only required for a work permit, as part of the concrete actions set in motion by the current administration which seeks to offer greater security to the population. The initiative, which will now be passed to the National Assembly for approval and adoption, seeks to remove limits to access and application of the information recorded in the Personal Identification files - known as the "Police Record" - for certain services in the application for employment. The proposal makes is clear that if there is no evidence of a punishable in the Personal Identification file of the DIJ then than should be established in the certificate issued. The struggle for security of the business sector is that they receive job applications on a daily basis and often they become the victims of crime, because often they don't know the real criminal history of the person and they give them a job, and often times they are granted access to confidential information which they then use to commit crimes, as one of the reasons behind this proposal to reform the law and to reactivate the criminal record. The Cabinet Council adopted a resolution authorizing the Minister of Government and Justice to propose to the reform to the National Assembly. (Source: TVN Noticias)
