The Senate would begin the analysis of the initiatives after the text of the proposed bills is released on Feb 1, 2020.
In the meantime, limited information on a number of salient aspects of the proposed reforms would be provided by the Senate including: the enactment of a National Criminal Code; new rules on imprisonment, training programs for the prison inmates; and community services.
There had been reports some news organizations regarding some leaked additional information to the press about the proposed reform. But all the admission of illegally obtained evidence has currently been prohibited by the constitution.
