The working week in the parliament began with the meeting of the Committee on Legislation, Law Enforcement, Defense, Security, Peacekeeping, Protection of Citizens' Rights and Freedoms. The deputies examined more than a dozen legislative initiatives, mainly related to the improvement of the norms of criminal procedural, civil and administrative legislation.
Deputies of the Committee considered amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses. As it was noted by the developer, Deputy of the Supreme Council Galina Antyufeeva, the purpose of the law-in-draft is to eliminate the contradiction of certain norms in terms of presenting requirements for executive documents. It is proposed to prescribe in the Code of Administrative Offenses the norm, according to which the executive document is certified by the seal of the body or the person who issued it. These requirements are contained in the law "On Enforcement Proceedings".
A number of amendments to the law "On State Protection" have been submitted to the relevant parliamentary committee for consideration. The author - the president - proposes to exclude from the list of persons who are granted state protection, the Commissioner for Human Rights, adding the list to the chairman of the Investigative Committee. As the official representative of the head of state in the parliament Anastasia Kipyatkova noted during the meeting of the Committee, the changes were developed in analogy with Russian legislation and are aimed at ensuring the security of the most significant legal institutions of the state. Parliamentarians of the committee agreed unanimously with the first proposal. The meeting was attended by the Commissioner for Human Rights Vyacheslav Kosinsky. The Ombudsman confirmed that he does not see the need for granting him state protection. Questions of deputies were raised by the rule concerning the inclusion of the Chairman of the Investigative Committee in the list of protected persons.
Taking into account the stated positions, the Committee's parliamentarians recommended that the plenary session adopt the law-in-draft in the first reading.
