Parliament amends procedure of deputy immunity withdrawal

Parliament amends procedure of deputy immunity withdrawal

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Law 3883 “On Amendments to the Rules of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine”, improving the procedure for granting consent to prosecution, detention or arrest of the MP.
235 deputies voted for the decision.
The law optimizes timing of consideration of this issue by the Verkhovna Rada. All the facts related to the criminal charges, detention or arrest of people’s deputy of Ukraine shall be considered directly at the plenary meeting of the Verkhovna Rada, with the participation of all the lawmakers, not in the relevant committee (an MP delivers speech, presents his written explanations, etc.).
Within consideration of this issue, an MP shall have the right to have a representative to expertly present their interests. MP shall be granted protection provided in the manner specified by the Code of Criminal Procedure and other laws.
