Support to Justice Sector Reforms in Ukraine
Another initiative supported by Advice Group in person of managing partner Anton Podilchak. We do hope that this form of cooperation of the legal community will provide unprecedented instruments for achieving the Rule of Law.
On 2 July 2015, the meeting of the Lviv Regional Justice Sector Reform Council brought together judges, prosecutors, lawyers and legal scholars to discuss the Justice Sector Reform Strategy 2015-2020 as well as related topics. The event was organized within a pilot initiative aimed to establish regional justice reform councils to assist Ukrainian partners in successful implementation of the Justice Sector Reform.
The very first meeting raised some crucially important legal issues to be discussed and resolved; one of the issues is non-approved semi legal constructions, reconstructions and related issues in real estate sector. The key unregulated matters relate to decision of the local collective government institutions like city and regional councils, which often conclude without proper legal grounding. Further, such decisions cause damages to third parties or the state but sanctions could not be applied to decision makers due to lack of legal instruments.
We hope to develop proper solutions of such problems within this initiative.
