Committees round-up: Daily

( Information Department of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Secretariat )


There are // bodies in focus of our committee scan today:

 

Committee on Youth and Sports

The committee supported the bill encouraging youth employment.

The bill No.1160, amending compulsory social insurance legislation of Ukraine, offers to cut the single contribution amount for those employers who do employ ‘post-school’ (in the wide sense – those who graduated or just severed their education) youth and after-army manpower applying for work for the first time. This provision is thought to be applied within two years of being hired only. The bill is seen to stop manpower drain of the young from Ukraine.

The committee’s decision was sent to the Committee on Finance, Taxation and Customs Policy.

 

Committee on Law Enforcement

The committee heard on October 18 the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Ruslan Riaboshapka on the progress in reforming the prosecution authorities system.

In his report, the Prosecutor General noted that investigation of criminal proceedings had been well intensified recently. In particular, the number of prosecuted high-ranking officials has increased.

He also apprised that he had tabled this week to the parliament a motion on lifting parliamentary immunity and applying remand in custody for a former chairman of one of the Verkhovna Rada committees and an active member of parliament.

“It seems to me that such an intensive and effective work of the law enforcement system is the result that should be taken into consideration when assessing the work of the prosecutor's office,” the Prosecutor General said.

Ruslan Riaboshapka informed the committee members about new directions of the prosecutor's office work. There was set up a special department in charge of guiding procedurally over particularly important proceedings - those concerning our economy and causing significant losses to Ukraine’s state budget and citizens.

Arrangements are also being made in the following areas: cooperation with foreign law enforcement agencies upon the return of assets arrested overseas and protection of investors.

Regarding the prosecution bodies reform, after the law reforming the prosecutor's office was adopted, there were approved the reclassification procedure and the date of entry for reclassification consent applications. Following the reclassification results, prosecutors will move to the Prosecutor General's Office.

"As of the morning of October 16 (October 15 was the final date), 96.3% of prosecutors have filed such applications," he stated.

“The Prosecutor General's Office will be in the reforming process until the end of the year. It will take then about three months for the oblast, regional level and another three or four months for local prosecutor's offices,” the Prosecutor General explained. - The whole process is planned to be completed by September, but we will try to do utmost for a faster - by July 1 - completion,” the politician concluded.

In summary, Denys Monastyrskyi, the Chairman of the Law Enforcement Committee, thanked the Prosecutor General for his participation in the meeting and drew his attention to a number of pressing issues. These problems are to be debated about at length at the 17 November meeting, whereto R.Riaboshapka was, too, invited to participate.

As a result of the discussion, the committee took into consideration the Prosecutor General’s information on the state of play in the ongoing reform of the prosecution authorities system.
