Review of the decisions of the deputies at the plenary session

Giving a deferral from military service to future firefighters legislations passed the second final reading. We are talking about specialists who graduated from specialized secondary or higher professional educational institutions. The deferral will be valid for the period of service in firefighters or emergency rescue units. Changes to the laws "On general military service" and "On fire safety in the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic" were initiated by the President of the PMR. The purpose of the legislations is to strengthen the personnel of the fire service to ensure the proper level of fire safety in the republic. Today this department is experiencing a shortage of personnel. The lack of personnel is especially felt in Tiraspol and Bendery. At the legislative level, the right is enshrined in the fire and rescue service of those who have a professional education, but have not completed compulsory military service. The amendments adopted by the Supreme Council were sent for signature to the President.

Restrictive measures aimed at combating the coronavirus will remain in place until September 1. The quarantine has been extended more than once in the republic. The period of quarantine measures was envisaged until June 15. The President sent the law-in-draft to the Parliament to extend the validity of these norms. As the official representative the head of the Control and Legal Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Radion Cebotar explained that there is a positive trend in morbidity, but today it is too early to say that the threat has completely passed. Adaptive quarantine continues in Pridnestrovie now, gradually a number of restrictions are being removed, based on statistics on morbidity.

The deputies re-examined the amendments to the law "On the status of people's deputies of local Soviets of people's deputies of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic", adopted on March 31. It is enshrined in the legislation the concept of "deputy act", a list of cases and the conditions for its preparation. The President rejected the adopted law and sent it for reconsideration to the Supreme Council.  A conciliation commission was created on this issue to overcome the disagreements that arose and develop an agreed version of the law. The commission includes representatives of the President and the Supreme Council. The joint decision was made to exclude from the list of cases for drawing up a deputy's act the fixation of information about the temporary absence of a person in residential building in order to recalculate the amount of payment for certain types of utilities.

The initiative of the deputies of the Legislation Committee concerning the rules of fishing was supported in the final reading. Amendments to the Code of Administrative Offenses were developed on the basis of a request from the State Service for Environmental Control and Environmental Protection. In order to exclude discrepancies in the law, the deputies proposed to give a new definition to the concept of “gross violation of fishing rules”. It now means: fishing in permanently prohibited areas during the spawning season; fishing with prohibited tools or methods; fishing on water bodies of territories belonging to the nature reserve fund. The adopted law-in-draft also weakens responsibility for violation of fishing rules by establishing such a measure as warning. Today fishermen are held liable for even minor offenses. Fines amount to 20-50 minimum wage (from 368 to 920 rubles). The deputies of the Legislation Committee consider that this does not correspond to the principle of fairness, and in the case of the first minor offense, such a measure as a "warning" can be applied. The document has been sent for signature to the President.
