Extra funds for Justice and Labour


The Macau SAR Government has granted an additional budget for the financial year of 2017 to the Coffer of Legal Affairs and the Labour Credit Guarantee Fund, amounting to MOP44.19 million and MOP6.03 million, respectively, according to two dispatches published in the Official Gazette yesterday.
The Coffer of Legal Affairs (CAJ) was created in 2005. Its main aims are to financially support the implementation and operations of registry and notary services, as well as the Judicial and Juridical Training Centre.
The Labour Credit Guarantee Fund (FGCL) was created in 2015 in order to secure the payment of credits linked to labour relations, such as indemnity due to work accidents or compensation, when there is default by the debtor.
