Ministry of Justice discovered illegal normative acts in the Ministry of Interior, State communication committee and State committee of nationalities and migration
The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine conducted the check of the observance of the legislation on state registration of normative-legal acts in the Ministry of Interior, State communication committee (SCC) and State committee of nationalities and migration (SCNM). Minister of Justice Aleksandr Lavrynovich informed that from 15% to 28.5% of the checked acts were not registered, so their use was illegal.
In particular, 12 unregistered acts for 2003-January 2004 were disclosed in the Ministry of Interior. This makes 28.5% of the total number of the acts issued by this agency, which had to be registered. The number of the unregistered acts in the SCC was 6 – 15% of the total number of the issued acts, which contained legal norms. 2 unregistered normative acts for the period from March 2003 to January 2004 were found in the SCNM – 25% of the acts that had to be registered, as well as 2 letters containing legal norms.
The press-service of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine communicated to LIGABusinessInform that the discovered normative acts affected the rights, freedoms and legal interests of citizens or had the inter-departmental character.
A. Lavrynovich also pointed out that, in the course of the check, all agencies took the necessary measures for liquidation of the violations. The disclosed normative acts were either presented for state registration or cancelled. In 2003 the Ministry of Justice checked the state registration in eight central organs of the executive power. During these checks the Ministry discovered 45 unregistered normative-legal acts – 30 acts less than in 2002. Oblast directorates found 348 unregistered normative-legal acts (822 in 2002), district directorates – 1216 (1773 in 2002). Last year all checked organs, where the violations were disclosed, except the Kyiv city state administration, took measures for the complete elimination of the violations. As to the Kyiv city state administration, the Ministry of Justice directed the complaint to the General Prosecutors office of Ukraine.
