Legal news in Ukraine: Legal Reform Commission, committees of the new Verkhovna Rada, launch of e-court, educational ombudsman has been appointed, competition for the position of ombudsman for the State Language’s Protection

The President approved the composition of the Legal Reform Commission

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved the regulation on the Legal Reform Commission and its staff.

The Commission provides proposals on improving the legal system of Ukraine, prepares proposals on amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine, legislation on the organization of the judiciary, the administration of justice and the status of judges, legislation on criminal liability and criminal procedural legislation, as well as on the development of legal education and law enforcement reform.

In addition, the Commission is working on legal frameworks for creating conditions for the reintegration into the single constitutional space of Ukraine of the temporarily occupied territories and the population living there.

The Commission is composed of legal professionals, including leading scientists and representatives of international organizations and all-Ukrainian public associations, whose activities are aimed at protecting human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Within the Commission, working groups are formed to: prepare proposals for amending the Constitution of Ukraine; development of legislation on the organization of the judiciary and the administration of justice; development of criminal law; reform of criminal justice; development of legal education and reintegration of temporarily occupied territories.

It is interesting that one third of potential members of the Commission have already worked in similar bodies of the former Presidents of Ukraine.

Zelenskyy liquidated the Judicial Reform Council and the Constitutional Commission by his Decree on June 21, 2019.

The preparatory group has designated the profile committees of the new Verkhovna Rada

The preparatory deputy group of People’s Deputies determined the list of 23 profile committees of the 9th Verkhovna Rada and its names.

The group agreed to set up such committees:

the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy, the Committee on Budgets, the Committee on Economic Development;

the Committee on Humanitarian and Information Policy, the Committee on Youth and Sport, the Committee on Education, Science and Innovation;

the Committee on Legal Policy, the Committee on Anti-Corruption Policy, the Committee on Law Enforcement;

the Committee on Human Rights, Occupation and Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories in Donetsk and Lugansk Oblasts, Crimea Occupation, Rights of National Minorities, International Relations;

the Committee on Digital Transformation, the Committee on Agrarian and Land Policy, the Committee on Energy and Housing and Communal Services, the Committee on Transport and Infrastructure;

the Committee on State Building, Local Self-Government, Regional Development, Urban Planning and Housing;

the Committee on National Security, Defense and Intelligence;

the Committee on National Health, Health Care and Insurance, the Committee on Environmental Policy and the Environment, the Committee on Social Policy and the Protection of Human Rights;

the Committee on Freedom of Speech, the Committee on Regulation, Parliamentary Ethics and Organization of Work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Committee on Foreign Policy and Interparliamentary Cooperation, the Committee on Integration of Ukraine with the European Union.

It should be noted that the solemn meeting and the first plenary session of the Ukrainian Parliament of the new convocation will take place on August 29, 2019.

The new e-court launch plan will be presented in August

A new plan for the implementation of the Unified Judicial Information and Telecommunication System is presented in August.

During the meeting, members of the High Council of Justice, experts and representatives of judicial self-government discussed a possible schedule for the launch of eight modules.

Among them: the only contact center of the judiciary of Ukraine, the only subsystem for managing financial and economic processes, the official e-mail address (electronic cabinet), the official web portal «Judicial Power of Ukraine», the unified state register of court decisions, electronic court, automated distribution and judicial statistics.

The heads of the state-owned enterprise «Information Judicial Systems» reported that a new system architecture is currently being designed.

The Deputy Chairman of the State Judicial Administration of Ukraine Sergiy Chornutskyy noted the implementation plan of the UTJITS will be submitted for discussion with all participants at the end of August.

In early March 2019, the State Judicial Administration of Ukraine revoked the official announcement of the system’s start, so that the courts have more time to prepare.

The Cabinet of Ministers approved the candidacy of the educational Ombudsman

On August 14, 2019, the Cabinet of Ministers officially appointed Sergey Gorbachov to the post of educational ombudsman.

The results of the selection for this position, the Ministry of Education and Science announced on July 12.

According to the procedure, specially created commission examined all the candidates and selected from them three people whom they recommended for appointment to the Minister.

The Institute of Educational Ombudsmen is created to protect the rights of educational recipients, pedagogical, scientific-pedagogical and scientific workers.

An educational ombudsman, in particular, cannot combine his work with activities other than creative and teaching activities, must be a citizen of Ukraine, who has lived in the territory of the state for at least 5 years, have higher education and relevant work experience, and be fluent in the state language.

At the time of his appointment, Gorbachov was the director of a Kiev specialized school with advanced study of Ukrainian language and literature.

The competition for the position of Ombudsman for the State Language’s Protection has begun

The Secretariat of the Commissioner of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine for Human Rights has begun accepting applications for the position of Commissioner for the State Language’s Protection.

After the selection of candidates, proposals will be submitted to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

Requirements for the candidacy of the Commissioner are contained in Article 50 of the Law of Ukraine «On ensuring the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state language».

The powers of the Commissioner, in particular, include the consideration of complaints of individuals and legal entities on actions and inaction of authorities to comply with the legislation on the state language and to draw up protocols and impose fines for violation of the language law.
