Gov’t to amend judicial agreement with mainland
The government is preparing to amend an agreement on mutual requests for judicial procedures, notifications and the presentation of evidence in both civil and commercial matters between the courts of the mainland and Macau. According to an executive order published in the Official Gazette, Secretary for Administration and Justice André Cheong has been empowered to sign the agreement with the Supreme People’s Court of the People’s Republic of China on behalf of the SAR government. The agreement was signed back in 2001 between Macau and the mainland. It is not currently clear what amendments will be made to the agreement and to what extent changes in the system will be enforced. According to the laws of the SAR, the fulfillment of such a request has exceptions, such as in the cases where the matter occurs outside the jurisdiction of the court or when the fulfillment of such agreement would breach the fundamental principles of Macau’s rule of law and order.
