Is the Ministry of Justice abolishing monitoring of telecommunications?

A letter has arrived, addressed to Yevhen Zakharov in his capacity as Chairperson of the Board of the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union and signed by the Deputy Ministry, I.I. Yemelyanova, stating the following:

“On the instructions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine has given your letter of 15 September 2005 consideration. Within the framework of its competence, it would inform you that your suggestions and comments will be taken into consideration in the drawing up of draft laws which are to be prepared by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.

At the same time, with regard to the issue of the Order of the State Committee for Communications No. 122 of 17.06.2002[1], we would state that the Ministry of Justice in a letter dated 13 October 2005 No. 37229-24 called upon the Ministry of Transport and Communications within a five-day period to declare no longer in force the Order No.122 of the State Committee for Communications and Information Automation of Ukraine from 17.06.2002. In the event that the above-mentioned Order is not brought into compliance with current legislation, the Ministry of Justice will begin procedure for revoking the decision on State registration of normative legal acts included in the State Register which were affirmed by the Order No. 32/5 of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine from 31.07.2000.

Let’s wait and see.
