The content of summons will change

The content of summons will be amended in the Verkhovna Rada. It will contain the name (number) of the criminal proceedings, within which summons to court is made, the record date in the Unified Register of pre-trial investigations, the content of the criminal proceedings, insofar as it relates to the procedural action for which the person is called up.

The Verkhovna Rada Committee on legislative support of law-enforcement practice during its last meeting recommended to the Verkhovna Rada to adopt as a basis and as a whole the draft Law No. 6402 “On Amending Article 137 of the Criminal Procedural Code of Ukraine on improving the content of the summons.”

The author of the draft law, the MP Palamarchuk, justified the proposed amendments as the need for additional protection of participants in criminal proceedings, access to information on criminal proceedings.
