On March 5, the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Moscow Region Ekaterina Semenova took part in the expanded board of the Office of the Federal Bailiff Service of the Region.
In her speech, Ekaterina Semenova noted that cooperation with the Bailiff Service is an important direction in the work to restore the rights and legitimate interests of citizens. The Commissioner voiced the main topics of complaints coming to her, related to the execution of court decisions.
"One of the problems is the erroneous identification of individuals as debtors in enforcement proceedings. The incoming appeals testify that the problem I noted in 2016 related to the application of enforcement measures to persons whose surname, first name and patronymic, and in some cases the date of birth coincide with the debtor’s data remained relevant," noted Ekaterina Semenova.
The Commissioner clarified that such complaints continue to flow, and they are typical for other regions. The problem was discussed at the recent Coordinating Council of Commissioners.
"It is necessary to introduce a provision into interdepartmental agreements that when identifying the data of a natural debtor, it is necessary to search for compulsory information, including personal tax reference number (INN) and insurance number of the individual ledger account (SNILS)," she specified. Also, the Ombudsman expressed her hope that the draft federal law, according to which when collecting the debt, the preservation of the amount equal to the subsistence minimum is guaranteed, will be adopted in the near future.
