The Procurator

Under the Constitution of our state supreme supervisory power to

ensure the strict observance of the law by all ministries, institutions,

organizations, as well as officials and citizens generally is vested in the

Procurator – General of Ukraine, who is appointed by the Supreme Council

of the Ukraine.

Procurator’s offices set up in the regions, districts by the

corresponding procurators, appointed by the Procurator General of Ukraine.

The procurator’s activity takes the following forms:

1. supervision of the strict observance of the laws by all ministries,

departments and local government bodies, officials and citizens generally;

2. supervision of the observance of legality by the organs conducting

inquiries and preliminary investigation

3. supervision of the legality of the grounds for judicial judgements,


4. supervision of the observance of the legality of keeping convicted

persons in places of confinement

Let us touch upon some rights and duties of the procurator.

Preliminary investigations or inquiries are conducted in most, criminal

cases before they are examined in court. Supervision over the strict

implementation of the law by investigators is exercised by the procurator.

He must see to it that no citizen is subjected to unlawful and ungrounded

criminal prosecution, or to any other unlawful restriction of his rights. By

law no person can be arrested except by court order or with the sanction of

a procurator.

The procurator discharges important functions in the trial of criminal

and civil cases, but he is not empowered to issue any instructions to the

court regarding the adjudication of a case justice in Ukraine is administered

by the court alone.

Like other participants in the trial (defence council, injured party and

others) a procurator may question eyewitnesses and other persons

interrogated in court, participate in the investigation of evidence in court,

submit fresh evidence in court, challenge the members of the court and

other participants of the trial. As soon as the court investigation is over, he

pronounces an indictment.

If he disagrees with the court’s judgement, he may lodge his protest

in a higher court, which passes a final decision on his protest.

The procurator has broad power of supervision over the observance

of legality in places of confinement: he verifies the legality of keeping

persons in places of confinement, he checks up if convicted persons are

released at the right time, he ensures that the statutory regime rules and the

rules of labor for convicted persons are observed, he supervises the state of

educational work, etc.
