Tatiana Moskalkova proposed reforming prosecution procedure

On April 6, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova took part in the All-Russian Workshop with the heads of the preliminary investigation bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, timed to the 55th anniversary of the formation of the investigative branch of the internal affairs bodies.

During the event Tatiana Moskalkova congratulated the employees of the investigation departments on the professional holiday.

«Most of our investigators are high professionals, people who are ready to solve large-scale, global tasks of the state. They are the main tie of not only statehood in the Russian land. You are the main keeper of justice," Tatiana Moskalkova said.

Speaking to the participants of the seminar, the federal ombudswoman suggested reforming the procedure for initiating a criminal case, because now this process can be delayed for a considerable time. According to Tatiana Moskalkova, the appeals addressed to her allow identifying a number of systemic problems, which, first of all, are connected with the initiation of a criminal case.

«People complain that sometimes they can not initiate a criminal case not even for months — but for several years," the High Commissioner said.

Tatiana Moskalkova also noted that today both the inspection of the scene of the crime and expert examinations are possible before the decision to initiate a criminal case is made.

«This timeframe which was earlier limited to three days, is now blurred. And it is very important that this stage, which is connected with the constitutional right to access to justice, received a new interpretation and a legislative decision today," the federal ombudswoman stressed.
