The constitutional court upheld the amendments to the Constitution in the abolition of parliamentary immunity.
The decision was taken after an appeal of the Parliament on the provision of the conclusion on compliance of draft law No. 6773 (on amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine regarding the abolition of parliamentary immunity) the requirements of article 157 and article 158 of the Constitution of Ukraine.
Thus, the bill number 6773 can be considered by the Parliament.
In the first reading the bill must bit supported by at least 226 votes, and the final adoption may occur no earlier than at the next regular session of the Parliament and must be made a minimum of 300 votes.
The bill proposes to exclude from the text of the Constitution of Ukraine, part 1 and part 3 of article 80, which deals with the guarantees of people’s deputies of parliamentary immunity, the failure to bring them to criminal responsibility and the prohibition on arrest or detention without the consent of the Verkhovna Rada.
In 2015, KSU has taken a decision on the abolition of parliamentary immunity. The court admitted that the bill meets the Constitution, but in 2017, the deputies removed the document from consideration.
We will note, the Minister of justice Pavel Petrenko said that parliamentary immunity cannot be completely cancelled, and should be restricted.
