NABU and SAPO urge the President to veto a law regarding allegedly abolition of the parliamentary immunity

The Draft Law No. 2237 regarding abolition of the parliamentary immunity will reduce the effectiveness of the investigation of crimes committed with the participation of existing Members of Parliament (MPs). The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed the Draft Law on December 18, 2019. Some of adopted norms may lead to procedural problems at the beginning of the investigation and allow MPs to avoid responsibility.
