Attorney General Faris Al-Rawi has described the Anti Gang Bill of 2018 as "Government's fighting chance" to overcome crime and violence in this country.

Presenting the Bill in the Senate, the Attorney General said many of the crimes recorded in the country have proven to be gang-related.

However, he said that the existing legislation lacks the teeth to tackle this sufficiently.

But with the same concerns that saw the Bill being booted out of the Parliament in 2017 arising again on Tuesday, the AG once again found himself defending the proposed legislation.

The major concern at hand, shared by both Opposition and Independent Senators, is that "legitimate law-abiding citizens of the country" would be compromised in the bid to crack down on rogue elements in the society.

But Mr. Al-Rawi insisted that the Bill offers sufficient protection.
