Amendments of the Law on Non-Profit Legal Entities, adopted at first reading, envisage special registration with the Trade Registry. The bill is tabled by the Council of Ministers.
Currently the non-profit legal entity is established by its entry in the register of legal non-profit entities at the regional court. There are special requirements for the non-profit organizations carrying out socially useful activity. They are registered in addition at the Central register with the Ministry of Justice.
It is expected that after transferring the registration at the Trade Register the activities of the non-profit legal entities will become more transparent and accountable. The aim is also to ease the administrative burden of the courts.
The parliament has ratified the Emergency Trust Fund for stability addressing root causes of irregular migration and displaced persons in Africa. The document was signed on 12 November 2015 in La Valetta.
The trust fund aims at collecting donations from the EU member countries and other donors to cope with the migratory crisis arising in Africa, by handling the causes for destabilization, forced displacement and irregular migration.
