The Verkhovna Rada Committee has comments on the proposed project


The relevant committee of the Verkhovna Rada found that the norm of the draft law №3890 on strengthening business liability for failure to take appropriate measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) did not meet the requirements of anti-corruption legislation.

This was announced in a comment to Ukrinform by the First Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Anti-Corruption Policy Yaroslav Yurchyshyn (Voice faction).

“The Cabinet of Ministers wants to once again allow law enforcement or even competitors to interfere in business activities without clearly prescribing requirements to prevent the spread of the epidemic. Bill №3890 proposes that the responsibility for non-compliance with sanitary norms be on both the person and the company. it is still possible to understand, and the company should be responsible for failure to take appropriate measures without explaining what is “appropriate measures”, how to prevent non-compliance. That is, if a person changes the mask inside the store and it is fixed, the store will be liable from two hundred to three hundred non-taxable minimum incomes of citizens, – ed.). business, especially small and medium-sized, are draconian methods, which allows for manipulation and opens up a wide range of possibilities. those for abuse. Accordingly, the profile committee on anti-corruption policy therefore found this rule to be inconsistent with anti-corruption legislation. We hope that the Verkhovna Rada Hall will support such a proposal, “Yurchyshyn explained.
