Given that the MMDA imposed exclusive and compulsory jurisdiction over Muslim marriages, the Committee expressed its particular concern in areas where it did not: (a) specify a minimum age of marriage and girls under 12 years of age are permitted to marry; (b) restricted the legal and judicial officer positions of Quazis, Board of Quazi members, Marriage Registrars and adjudicators to male Muslims only; and,(c) the law on statutory rape is not applicable to girls under 16 years of age who are legally married under Muslim law and who engage in sexual intercourse with their husband while not legally separated.
Sri Lanka was thus recommended to: (a) Prepare a unified family code in conformity with the Convention in which equal rights of women and men in the family relations, including marriage, divorce, inheritance, property and land are addressed; (b) Amend the General Marriage Registration Ordinance to ensure that Muslim women have the free choice to opt out from the Muslim Personal Law, so as to be registered under the general law; (c) Ensure that property rights are governed by general civil contractual and property law rather than religious law; (d) Increase the minimum age of marriage for all women in the State party to 18 years of age; (e) Eliminate any restriction on women’s eligibility to be appointed as Quazis, as Members of the Board of Quazis, Marriage Registrars and adjudicators; and, (f) Amend article 363 of the Penal Code to ensure that the crime of statutory rape applies to all girls under the age of 16, without exception in order to abide by the Convention the country is party to.
