A bill amending the judiciary law will be discussed in the upcoming parliamentary session, a Myanmar MP said.
Thein Nyunt, the Parliament Representative of Thingangyun Township, said the proposed amendment will be on the conduct of judges of the High Court.
The MP, who is also the chairperson of the New National Democracy Party and one of the well-known activists in the parliament, submitted the bill on November 23 during the fifth regular session of the Lower House parliament.
He said judges should be required to take an oath in court just like plaintiffs, defendants and witnesses.
“Without the oath, they welcome corruption and bribery,” said Thein Nyunt.
Thein Nyunt also proposed for High Court judges to inspect prisons in regions and states, at least once in six months.
