The Venice Commission stands against abolition of deputies’ immunity

Experts of the Venice Commission emphasize that the full removal of the immunity of the deputy is an absurd while current corrupted law enforcement and judicial system exists in Ukraine. This was noticed by the Deputy Chairman of Verkhovna Rada Oksana Siroid in the live stream of the 5th channel. ‘They say we should realize that we will not be able to work as the deputies, as one can be arrested upon the first political order and your work will be over. Retaining corrupted judicial and law enforcement system and total abolition of the deputy immunity at the same time is absurd. Even the most democratic and safe countries do not take this decision,’ – she said.Siroid noticed that experts of the Venice Commission ‘began to alarm’ when they received Ukrainian draft law on full abolition of the deputy immunity. ‘When we talk about full abolition of the deputy immunity, we should see the judges. If we fully abolish deputy immunity, it means that a deputy becomes fully vulnerable for law enforcement system. And these are current investigators, prosecutors and judges,’ – she noticed. As of Siroid, immunity is a necessity for performing duties by a deputy.
