Activity Synopsis (ID# 33869) (Hide Synopsis)

Objective(s) To discuss with the Ukrainian authorities the final draft Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, based on the legal opinion prepared by the Council of Europe experts. 
Output/Results This was a follow-up round table on the draft Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine (CPC), which was organised in Kyiv as a result of agreements with the Ukrainian authorities reached during the round table held on 9 November in Strasbourg. The dialogue with the authorities, which were represented by high-level officials of the Presidential Administration and the Prosecutor General and his Deputy, continued. Most of the experts’ recommendations on the draft CPC had already been accepted by the authorities before the round table, which aim was to discuss the final draft CPC and the list of points prepared by the authorities for which they requested the experts' additional clarifications. 
Conclusions/Follow Up The discussion went on in a constructive atmosphere and all points of the expertise were highlighted and explained. The authorities re-formulated a number of provisions of the final draft CPC in line with the requirements of a modern adversarial criminal procedure, meeting the standards of the European Convention on Human Rights. As a result of the round table, the amended final draft will be forwarded by the Presidential Administration to the Parliament in the nearest future, before the end of 2011.
