Unfavorable situation with regard to the incidence of coronavirus infection remains in the republic. The Supreme Council received law-in-draft of the PMR President "On Amendments to Some Legislative Acts of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic". The goal is to extend the period of validity of a number of legislative acts that are aimed at preventing the spread of coronavirus infection in the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic. It expires on September 30. The law-in-draft proposes to extend the deadline until December 1 of this year. The document was sent to parliament in the mode of legislative necessity, which means that it must be considered as soon as possible. The law-in-draft was discussed today by the deputies of the Legislation Committee. It was noted at the meeting that, according to the current norms, due to quarantine, the right of Pridnestrovians to leave the republic may be temporarily limited. The Code of Administrative Offenses gives the right to employees of internal affairs bodies and state security agencies to draw up protocols on administrative violations in ensuring the sanitary and epidemiological well-being of the population during the quarantine period. Due to the continuing unfavorable situation in the incidence of coronavirus and the continuation of the quarantine, it is necessary to support the initiative of the PMR President to extend the current norms, the relevant committee considers. The adoption by the Supreme Council law-in-draft of the President will enable the executive body of power, in the presence of a negative sanitary and epidemiological situation, to set restrictions for Pridnestrovians until December 1, 2020.

The Parliament plans to consider the law-in-draft in the course of the plenary session on 23 September. Deputies of the Legislation Committee will recommend the adoption of the document in two readings.

The issue of amending the Resolution of the Supreme Council on amnesty timed to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Great Victory and the 30th anniversary of the formation of the PMR was also considered at the meeting of the relevant committee. The amendment was initiated by the fact that the deputies receive applications from the relatives of those who evaded military service and who are fined up to 750 minimum wage amount. According to the Head of the Committee on Legislation Galina Antyufeyeva, it is necessary to consider the possibility of applying an act of amnesty to such persons, exempting them from paying a fine. The opinion was supported by colleagues in the Committee. The final decision is up to the deputies.
