📌KOMF ka marrë pjesë në tre takimet e fundit të Komisionit për të Drejtat e Njeriut, Barazi Gjinore, Persona të Pagjetur, Viktimat e Dhunës Seksuale të Luftës dhe Peticione, Kuvendi i Republikës së Kosovës - Skupština Republike Kosova. Në këto takime, u diskutua mbi çështjet e përfundimit të akteve nënligjore të Ligjit për Mbrojtjen e Fëmijës. Përfaqësuesit e institucioneve si Zyra për Qeverisje të Mirë në kuadër të Zyrës së Kryeministrit, Ministrisë së Drejtësisë, Ministrisë së Arsimit, Shkencës, Teknologjisë dhe Inovcaionit dhe Këshillit Gjyqësor të Kosovës, njoftuan mbi procesin e hartimit dhe përfundimit të të gjitha akteve nënligjore të parapara me Ligjin për Mbrojtjen e Fëmijës. Në takime u informua se nga 17 udhëzime administrative sa janë të parapara në LMF, 15 prej të cilave janë nën përgjegjësinë e institucioneve qeveritare, ndërsa dy të institucioneve të pavarura, siç është Këshilli i Gjyqësor dhe Këshilli i Pavarur i Mediave, janë aprovuar nëntë prej tyre. U theksua që të gjitha aktet nënligjore janë në fazën përfundimtare të kompletimit, por për shkak të disa vështirësive, para së gjithash lidhur me sigurimin e mjeteve financiare, ka pasur vonesa në aprovimin e tyre.🔵Gjatë takimit, KOMF njoftoj anëtarët e komisionit për punën që KOMF është duke bërë për mobilizimin rreth implementimit të Ligjit për Mbrojtjen e Fëmijës. Konkretisht, KOMF njoftoj që ka mbajtur sesione informuese me rreth 400 profesionistë të mbrojtjes së fëmijës për implementimin e Ligjit për Mbrojtjen e Fëmijës, ka organizuar fushata online për promovimin e LMF-së si dhe ka monitoruar implementimin e LMF-së ku së shpejti do të publikoj Raportin e Monitorimit me të gjetura konkrete dhe rekomandime. ...
