Attorney Services

Support in inspections

of law enforcement and regulatory authorities, including the State Tax Service, Ministry of internal Affairs and other. The presence of a specialist in the field of law, who is a lawyer, not just a lawyer, during any checks, cannot be underestimated. First of all, it concerns the inspections carried out by employees of law enforcement bodies. There have been cases where such workers are supposed to come to check of economic activity, are presented only for his business card and require an entity to present the trade patent, certificate of conformity of the goods, hygiene opinions and other documents. However, in most cases, such claims are baseless, because requiring any documents confirming the origin or quality of the goods, the police officers (who are representatives of law enforcement and not controlling bodies) actually undertake functions of regulatory authorities such as the services, the Inspectorate for consumer protection, etc., that is, do not act in the framework of their powers, and therefore legally competent explanation of these circumstances, to such employees, as a rule, leads to the end of "verification" of law enforcement officers.

Also, quite often allow business entities in conducting "inspections" of law enforcement officers in the warehouse, household and administrative premises in fact, in the absence of grounds for such admission, as in most cases the legitimacy of entering premises and stay in the premises of the supervisory bodies, without the consent of the owner of the premises will be confirmed by a court decision.

Law of Ukraine "About Police" found that the police officer has the right of free access to the territory and premises of enterprises, institutions and organizations have the right to inspect them solely for the purpose of crime prevention, prosecution of persons suspected of having committed a crime, a natural disaster or other emergency circumstances. The police officer has permission to be on the territory and premises of enterprises, institutions and organizations with a message to inform the sole purpose of ensuring the safety of citizens, public safety, crime prevention, and detection and arrest the perpetrators.

Also, in accordance with Art. 233 about Criminal Procedure don’t entitled to enter the home or other property of a person (under a different ownership entity refers to a vehicle, house, garage and other buildings or residential premises, service, commercial, industrial and other purposes, etc., which are in the possession of the person) for any purpose, except with the voluntary agreement of the person who owns them, or on the basis of the decision of the investigating judge, except as required by the third part of this article.

Part 3 of Art. 233 Code of Criminal Procedure provides that only the investigator or the prosecutor (and not any member of the law enforcements agencies) is entitled to a ruling of the investigating judge to enter a home or other property of a person only in urgent cases related to the preservation of human life and property or to the direct pursuit of persons suspected of having committed a crime.

Unfortunately, the police officers sometimes "forget" about the legislative restriction of their rights and on the rights of the owner to enter any premises of the enterprise, however, a timely reminder lawyer on the relevant restrictions or requirement of the lawyer to the police Department to provide the documents and explanations regarding the legality of stay in appropriate premises in most cases leads to the fact that law enforcement officers to leave the territory of the enterprise.

Protecting of the interests of the client during interrogations as a witness, victim or suspect.

It often happens that the interrogation as a witness is a prerequisite for the presentation of a person suspected of a crime, all the more that the witness shall bear criminal liability for knowingly giving false testimony or for refusal to testify about the famous witness the circumstances of the offence. In preparing the agenda with the requirement to appear for questioning as a witness even important to consult an experienced attorney.

In case bringing a person as a suspect in a crime, well-defined line of defense of the client, and "control" advocate the observance of pre-trial investigation authorities due process in the investigation of the criminal offense may lead to a change in training actions of the client to a more "soft" article of the Criminal code Ukraine and the closure of criminal proceedings in connection with the failure to identify the actions of the client alleged crime.

The interests of the persons suffered from the crime an experienced lawyer, other than direct assistance to a person performs an additional incentive for the investigator to comply with current legislation during the pre-trial investigation and complicates the possibility of evasion of statutory criminal liability.

Protection of interests the client in a search or inspection of the home, or other possession of a person.

A search or inspection of the home or other possession of a person is the investigative actions that are associated with the direct access of law enforcement officers in the house, the other of a person to services of an experienced lawyer with a search / inspection is a guarantee that the search / inspection will be carried out both with minimal disruption to customer and in compliance with the applicable legislation laws of Ukraine, establishing the inviolability of the home or any other possession of a person.

In accordance with the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure, a search or inspection may be conducted only by the investigator or the prosecutor and solely on the basis of a court for permission to search the home or other possession of a person. That is, a lawyer representing the interests of the person - the owner (user) of the location in which to conduct a search / inspection first checks the authority of law enforcement officers who are planning to conduct a search / inspection - in the absence of law enforcement officers documents proving the procedural status of the investigator / prosecutor criminal proceedings, in the course of which a search is conducted, the person - the owner (user) space has every legitimate reason refuse workers of District Department of Internal Affairs is available under the premise. Also, the lawyer can analyze the decision of the court for permission to search the home or other possession of a person - the presence of even a small technical error in this decision may be sufficient legal basis for the denial of legitimate enforcement officers access to the premises and, consequently, to the failure to conduct a search.

The Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine found that a search or inspection of the home or other possession of a person is carried out with the obligatory participation of at least two disinterested persons (witnesses). The main requirement of "no interested" witnesses are often ignored by the staff of District Department of Internal Affairs - to act as witnesses "persistent witnesses" who are employees of District Department of Internal Affairs carry with them to participate in all investigative actions. The lawyer discovered a close and rather informal discussion of these "witnesses" to the employees of District Department of Internal Affairs can point to such a discrepancy procedural rules and to require the carrying out of a search / inspection really disinterested persons, which will prevent possible abuses during the search / examination, which, unfortunately, often allowed employees of District Department of Internal Affairs .

Protection during the judicial review of administrative cases

 cases of administrative violations, including corruption offenses, breaches of traffic rules, violations in urban planning, etc.

 Code of Administrative Offences provides that a person brought to administrative responsibility in a case may use legal assistance lawyer or other professional in law, who by law has the right to legal assistance. At the same time, due to the lack of legal definition of the term "expert in the field of law," the courts are actually allowed to participate in the proceedings as a representative of the person brought to administrative responsibility, only a lawyer.

 However, considering peculiarities of proceedings on administrative violations and also providing statutory powers to draw up protocols on administrative violations significant number of subjects (which, in some cases, generally are not subject to authority) for violations committed in a wide range of public relations, ability to attract as an advocate in these cases only a lawyer, and not any other "expert in the field of law," is the most positive thing.
