Legal news in Ukraine: Government Supports Arbitration Courts Bill, new decision of Constitutional Court, rules for admission to premises of courts, date of the next congress of judges, list of government posts that police officers can fill

The Government Supports Arbitration Courts Bill

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine supported the draft Law of Ukraine «On Amending Certain Laws of Ukraine (regarding the improvement of the procedure for the formation and activities of arbitration courts in order to restore confidence in arbitration proceedings»).

The draft law was developed by the Ministry of Justice.

The document improves the procedure for the formation and activities of arbitration courts to strengthen the requirements for organizations under which such courts can operate continuously, and expands the powers of arbitration bodies for the effective implementation of arbitration proceedings.

In particular, the draft Law proposes to provide for:

changing the procedure for state registration of arbitration courts, in particular, determining the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine as the sole subject of state registration of permanent arbitration courts (now this function, except for the Ministry of Justice, is carried out by other state registration entities);

Strengthening requirements for organizations where permanent arbitral tribunals can be formed: such organizations should be non-profit making and should be entered in the Register of non-profit institutions and organizations, and their term of activity from the moment of state registration as a legal entity to the decision on the formation of the arbitral tribunal should be more than five years;

the expansion of the powers of the Arbitration Chamber of Ukraine, in particular, its powers will include the establishment of compliance of the founder of the court with the requirements of the law and the provision of an appropriate opinion;

a change in the jurisdiction of cases, in particular, the possibility of arbitration courts to consider cases of real estate disputes (the provision will come into force three years from the date this Law comes into force).

According to the bill, the activity of the existing arbitration courts, which do not pass state registration in a specified period, will be terminated.

Constitutional Court ruled in the case of a gradual increase in the retirement age for individuals

The Constitutional Court of Ukraine declared unconstitutional the provisions providing for the gradual increase of the retirement age for certain categories of persons.

The Grand Chamber of the Constitutional Court examined the constitutionality of certain provisions of Section I, Clause 2 of Section III, «Final Provisions», of the Law of Ukraine «On Amendments to certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Pension Supply» of March 2, 2015, No. 213 ‒ VIII.

We are talking about a gradual increase of 5 years of age for retirement on preferential terms, taking into account the relevant length of service. And also – a retirement pension for employees defined in the challenged provisions of Law No. 213.

«In reviewing the aforementioned provisions for compliance with the Constitution of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine proceeds from the fact that workers who worked under harmful conditions and agreed to such work because of the possibility of obtaining certain benefits had an objective expectation that they had the right to retire on the terms set out in the Law of Ukraine "On Pension Insurance" of November 5, 1991 № 1788-XII», – Court states.

After the amendment of Law No. 213, the right of such persons to retire on certain conditions was reduced. The Constitutional Court of Ukraine considers this to be a deterioration of their legal position regarding the right to a pension.

Rules for admission to the premises of courts have been changed

The State Judicial Administration of Ukraine has amended the Rules on the admission of persons to the buildings (premises) of courts, bodies and institutions of the justice system and vehicles on their territory, the Ukrainian National Bar Association reports.

In particular, the certificate of a lawyer of Ukraine has been added to the list of documents by which people will be allowed into the premises of the courts.

«In order to identify persons who arrived in court, another body or institution of the justice system, they are admitted on the basis of an identity document (passport of a citizen of Ukraine, passport for traveling abroad, certificate of a lawyer of Ukraine, national driver's license of Ukraine, pension certificate, of another official document containing a photograph of the person and the seal of the institution issuing the document)», the State Judicial Administration of Ukraine explains.

The date of the next congress of judges of Ukraine has been determined

The XVIII Regular Congress of Judges of Ukraine will be held on April 6-7, 2020. This decision was made on January 31 at a meeting of the Council of Judges of Ukraine.

The congress will be held in the city hall of the «Presidential Hotel» at the following address: Kyiv, st. Hospitalna, 12.

The judicial community will elect a judge of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine; consider the election of the Council of Judges of Ukraine; hears the report of the Council of Judges of Ukraine on the tasks of judicial self-government bodies to ensure the independence of the courts and judges, the state of organizational and financial support of the courts activity, as well as information of the Chairman of the State Judicial Council of Ukraine on its activities, in particular, regarding the organizational, financial and logistical support of the judicial bodies.

The President has updated the list of government posts that police officers can fill

On January 28, 2020, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi has updated a list of posts that can be replaced by police in government bodies, institutions and organizations.

These include, in particular, deputies and advisers to the Minister of the Interior, civil service positions in the Ministry (900 staff units), Director of the State Forensic Expertise Center and Rector and First Vice-Rector of the University (academy, institute), belonging to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
