WHAT WILL BE THE REASONS FOR CHARGING WITH A CRIMINAL OFFENCE IN UKRAINE

There was information that the President of Ukraine signed the law on criminal offence adopted by the Parliament on 22.11.2018.

This law was awaited at least since 2012! A criminal offence is an act (act or omission to act) that is subject to a penalty of not more than three thousand non-taxable minimum incomes of citizens or other punishment not connected with deprivation of liberty.

A simplified procedure for the investigation of misconduct is introduced – a preliminary investigation.

The classification of crimes will also change – minor offence, grave offence and gravest crime.

Another highlight is the criminalization of article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses – driving under the influence (this will be a new article of the Criminal code 286-1: driving while under the influence of alcohol, narcotic or other intoxicant or under the influence of drugs that reduce concentration and reaction time).
