On deputies’ immunity again

A.B., Donetsk
The Donetsk informative-analytical center carried out a poll in Donetsk region. The question was whether one agrees that deputies should have immunity from the criminal investigation; the pollees were also asked to name reasons for their opinion. According to the results of the poll, 74% agree to cancel deputies’ immunity. The reasons given were quite various: all people must be equal before law (36%), there are many crooks among deputies (20%), down to the fuzzy reason ‘to guarantee order’. About 7% voted for the deputies’ immunity. The reason is that if the immunity is cancelled, deputies will be helpless before the executive power, since they can be framed in some criminal case for their principal political activities.
