Lawmaker Wong Kit Cheng has written an interpellation to the government asking about the progress of the legislation on the domestic affairs mediation system. Wong pointed out that in 2015, the local government promised it would build a domestic affairs mediation system suitable for Macau. In 2018, the Legal Affairs Bureau stated that the bureau would first formulate a mediation system for civil and commercial matters, excluding a domestic affairs mediation system. In Wong’s opinion, the legislation on the domestic affairs mediation system continues to be delayed, creating difficulties for the implementation of the domestic violence law.
