Military inspection in the PMR and the new Part of the Civil Code


The Parliamentary Committee on Legislation, Protection of the Rights and Freedoms of Citizens held a meeting today, at which considered in the first reading a package of legislative initiatives on military inspection. It will be created in the structure of the Armed Forces of the PMR. This is an initiative of the PMR President Vadim Krasnoselsky. Amendments and additions are made to the law on the Armed Forces and a number of other legislative acts, in particular, on the status of military personnel, on the militia, in the Criminal Procedure Code and the Code of Administrative Offenses in order to consolidate the legal basis for the activities of the military inspection. It will be prescribed at the legislative level that the military inspection is a body that will ensure the protection of life, health, rights and freedoms of military personnel. The military inspectorate will include military commandant's offices, automobile inspections, guardhouses and bodies of inquiry. The structure will be led by the Minister of Defense. One of the most important functions of the inspectorate will be to conduct an inquiry into cases of all crimes committed by military personnel, citizens undergoing military training, and army civilian personnel. It will also receive the right to conduct proceedings on materials of gross disciplinary offenses and apply disciplinary arrest to military personnel. The explanatory note notes that the creation of a military inspection will free military personnel from the inquiry and search for commanders of military units and officers.

The Committee on Legislation considered in the second reading the law-in-draft "On the Enactment of the Fourth Part of the Civil Code of the PMR" today. Until now, the rights to the fruits of intellectual labor are protected by several laws (“On Trademarks, Service Marks, Appellations of Origin and Brand Names”, “On Breeding Achievements” and “Patent Law”), as well as by-laws and resolutions of the Government of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. The Civil Code does not provide for intellectual property rights. The explanatory note to the law-in-draft notes: the relevant norms of the Russian Federation, adopted on December 18, 2006, are taken as the basis for the new part of the Civil Code of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic within the framework of harmonization of the Pridnestrovian legislation with the Russian, taking into consideration the specifics of our republic. Some changes and additions are made to the first and second parts simultaneously with the introduction of the fourth part of the Civil Code.
