The bills for protection and safety of the attorneys are being drafted

Lydia Izovytova, the President of the National Bar Association of Ukraine, has conducted a meeting with the heads of the committees on rights and guarantees of the advocacy, on human rights, on international relations, and the head of the new committee on mediation.

It is reported on the website of the Association.

Due to a dramatic increase in the violations of rights and guarantees of the advocacy and the emergence of such alarming incidents as the disappearance and murder of the attorneys, the President of the National Bar Association has instructed the Committee on Rights and Guarantees of the Advocacy to draw up the draft amendments to the Act on Bar and Advocacy and the Criminal Procedure Code, which will be aimed at reinforcing the protection and safety of the attorneys, the protection of attorney-client privilege, and the law dossier. Also the relevant committee is to draw up the Draft Regulations of Protection and Security of the attorneys’ offices.

All these documents will be presented for deliberation of the bill “On amending the Act on Bar and Advocacy”, which the National Bar Association holds in Kyiv on March 25.
