It will also repair any occupational disability, from 5 %, with retroactive effect, for cases who were not yet settled.
Besides, this new law comes to determine the rights of the interior security forces personnel, in case of professional disability or diseases and set the modalities for repairing in case of partial or permanent professional disability or in case of death.
The opposition deputies, who had suspended their participation in the NCA works, took part in Wednesday's plenary session.
