via Macau Daily Times, 1 Sep 2022: A Macau lawmaker is calling for a review of local Cultural Heritage protection legislation.
Lawmaker Ella Lei has asked the government to completely review the implementation of the Cultural Heritage Protection Law to enhance relevant policymaking.
She pointed out that, in the years after the promulgation of the law in 2013, damage to cultural heritage or historic sites has sometimes occurred. Some such sites have been found lacking in proper maintenance, the lawmaker added.
For these reasons, Lei demanded in her latest enquiry a disclosure from the government of whether it has ever fully reviewed the execution of the law and related regulations. A full review, she said, will help the government make better policies in the future.
