Комитет по законодательству, правоохранительным органам, обороне, безопасности, миротворческой деятельности, защите прав и свобод граждан


The conversation at the meeting of the Committee on Legislation continued on how to give alimony defaulters an opportunity to earn money to pay off the debt. Deputies of the Supreme Council Galina Antyufeyeva, Oleg Petrik and Grigory Dyachenko drafted a law-in-draft proposing to allow people who are in arrears to leave the country for up to twenty-four hours. Such innovation, according to the authors, should be applied in exceptional cases. The deputies supported the law-in-draft in the first reading. The profile committee discussed the received today amendments. It is proposed to prescribe the list of grounds for permission by the bailiff to leave within 24 hours. Among them there is an agreement between the debtor and the recoverer, confirmed by the statement, the need for treatment abroad or the serious illness of the close relatives of the debtor outside the country, as well as other reasons.

There are about 3.5 thousand debtors for alimony in the republic. Deputies often receive appeals from citizens who complain about the hopeless situation. The Committee during the meeting discussed the possible exclusion of criminal responsibility for arrears in the payment of alimony.

The proposed amendments are recommended to colleagues on the deputy corps for adoption in the second reading.

Deputies during the meeting of the Committee discussed a law-in-draft proposed by parliamentarians Vitaly Kalin and Vadim Kravchuk. The developers proposed to improve the law “On ensuring access to information on the activities of the courts of the PMR”.

Deputies of the profile committee supported the initiative. According to the Chairman of the Committee, Galina Antyufeyeva, it is necessary to promptly consider it by the deputies.

The vice-speaker proposed to create a working group to study the issue of collecting and placing data on the official websites of the judiciary, inviting representatives of the courts, prosecutors and the public.
