Legal news in Ukraine: Amendments to the Constitution, protest action of notaries, new anti-corruption law, interim chief of the Anti-Corruption Court’s staff is elected, competition for paralegals has been announced

The Law on Amendments to the Constitution regarding the course of Ukraine in NATO and the EU came into force

The Law of Ukraine on Amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine regarding the strategic course of the state to acquire full membership of Ukraine in the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization entered into force on February 21, 2019.

The law amended the preamble of the Basic Law of Ukraine and Articles 85, 102, 116 of the Constitution of Ukraine.

The fifth paragraph of the preamble after the words «civil consent on the land of Ukraine» is supplemented with the words «and confirming the European identity of the Ukrainian people and the irreversibility of the Ukraine’s European and Euro-Atlantic course».

Clause 5 of the first part of Article 85 of the Constitution of Ukraine is set forth as follows: «the definition of the foundations of domestic and foreign policy, the implementation of the strategic course of the state to acquire full membership of Ukraine in the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization».

Article 102 is supplemented by a third part of the following content: «The President of Ukraine is the guarantor of the state’s implementation of the strategic course for the acquisition of full membership of Ukraine in the European Union and in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization».

Article 116 is supplemented with clause 11: «ensures the implementation of the state’s strategic course for the acquisition of full membership of Ukraine in the European Union and in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization».

The law excludes clause 14 of Section XV «Transitional Provisions» from the Constitution of Ukraine, which provides for the use of existing military bases on the territory of Ukraine for the temporary stay of foreign military formations on lease terms in accordance with international treaties.

Notaries will hold a peaceful protest on February 25

The Council of the Notary Chamber of Ukraine decided to hold a peaceful protest «Notariate against corruption and raider schemes» on February 25, 2019.

The notary chamber is protesting against the experiment on the introduction of exam for candidates for the post of registrars, as well as for registrars who have been disconnected from access to registries. The experiment began on January 1, 2019.

The requirement to receive another certificate violates the constitutional right of notaries to work, and also contradicts the law on registration, said the chairman of the Notary Chamber Vladimir Marchenko. According to the law in force, additional qualification requirements cannot be established for notaries. Marchenko asks the Minister of Justice of Ukraine to urgently restore access to state registries to notaries, whose access has expired, without requiring additional testing.

The protest will begin at 10:00 in Kiev, near the building of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

Notarial actions will not be performed on this day either, in order to attract public attention to the requirements of the notarial community.

The action will not involve public notaries, who on this day will receive citizens, as well as private notaries working in the districts, where less than two notaries operate.

The Notary Chamber notes that the action does not contain political subtext.

National agency on corruption prevention will develop a new anti-corruption bill

Some of the provisions of the draft law on anti-corruption strategy have lost their relevance and need to be updated, states the Chairman of the National agency on corruption prevention Alexander Mangul.

«We have created an anti-corruption strategy, we have done a lot of work on this project. The draft law was relevant at the time of its submission to the Verkhovna Rada, namely in April 2018. The project has not yet been considered in the session hall. We understand that the document should be updated», he said.

The National Agency will begin work on a new project in the near future, partners from international organizations and members of the public will be invited to develop it.

An interim chief of the Supreme Anticorruption Court's staff has been appointed

Alexey Zhukov was appointed as the Chief of Staff of the Supreme Anticorruption Court.

Zhukov was appointed by the Order of the Judicial Administration of Ukraine on February 19, 2019.

The acting head of the court apparatus registers the newly formed court as a legal entity and provides the necessary actions to start its work.

He also represents the court as a state authority in relations with other state authorities, local governments, individuals and legal entities.

He shall exercise these powers until the appointment of at least one judge and until the appointment of an appropriate head of staff.

The chairman of the Higher Qualification and Disciplinary Bar Commission has been elected

The congress of attorneys elected Sergiy Vilkov as chairman of the High Qualification and Disciplinary Bar Commission of Ukraine.

The position became vacant after Alexander Drozdov was elected as a representative of the bar in the High Qualification Commission of Judges.

The Congress of Advocates also chose 5 new members of the Supreme Audit Commission of the Bar.

Vasyliy Raika (Zakarpatska oblast), Ruslan Nadiaona (Kharkiv), Irina Sachayeva, Igor Mukin and Andriy Karas (Kherson) were elected to the Commission. Voting took place separately for each candidate. The newly elected members will begin to exercise their powers from November 2019.

The competition for paralegals training was announced

The Legal Aid Co-ordination Center announced a competition for training of paralegals (public advisers).

Public advisers understand legal issues and redirect to a competent institution or provide legal information that helps a person to independently resolve his problem.

«If you are concerned about the development of your community, you understand its problems, seek change and are ready to make efforts to help the community, we invite you to take part in the contest and join the team of public advisers!», – the message says.

Public advisers will have specialized training on various issues: security, decentralization, information and financial literacy, work of state institutions, resource mobilization, realization of rights to education, health care and others.
