The first link is to the Official Gazette, where Laws are published. The second link points to the Parliament's website, which lists laws from 2013-2017. Laws, resolutions, decisions and amendments are listed here, with the title, year and adoption date. Content is available to view or download in DOC and/or PDF. The data is searchable, however amendments/decisions to laws don't appear to be linked accordingly.
