International Criminal Court Bill 2003: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage.
Brendan Howlin (Wexford, Labour)
I think the Minister would believe that the insertion I propose is much more comprehensive. It is also much more respectful, particularly in terms of human remains and is sensitive to the wishes of the loved ones of individuals. I do not think we should leave it as a discretionary issue. It should be clear and should be set out in a respectful way in legislation. These are sensitive matters and are not discretionary, to be left to the whim of the Minister of the day.
