The prosecutors of Transcarpathia revealed gross violations in the work of the border guards
Prosecutors finished inspecting the state of inquiry in criminal cases conducted by the Mukachevo border guard detachment, legality of decisions, as well as state of operative-search activity. A number of gross violations has been revealed.
According to the senior prosecutor of the Department for supervision over the observance of laws by the Security Service, State Customs Service, State Border Guard Service during hordes, inquiry and pre-trial investigation Ivan Tsar, it has been found out that in criminal cases measures aimed at making the final procedural decision are not actually carried out, investigators only give instructions that in turn are formally reviewed during the conduct of operative-search activities, and in case of the possible involvement of other persons to commit new crimes no legal decisions are adopted.
Moreover, the detective work is virtually non-existent, which in turn leads to a large residue of criminal cases where person who committed the crime is not determined. This enables criminals to avoid criminal responsibility and continue criminal activity.
These violations of procedural criminal laws were allowed to happen by the officials of the Mukachevo border guard detachment despite the fact that in every criminal case, the prosecution provided written instructions, which have not been met for years.
The prosecutor considers that the causes and conditions that contributed to the commission of violations of the applicable procedural criminal law, are improper performance of their duties by the officials of the Mukachevo border guard detachment, lack of effective control over the work of subordinates by management, as well as systematic and flagrant disregard of prosecutors' instructions.
Therefore, the regional prosecutor's office submitted to the head of Western Regional Office of the State Border Service of Ukraine a statement on elimination of revealed violations of procedural criminal law and the Law of Ukraine "On the operational activities", - the press service of the Prosecutor's Office of the Transcarpathian region reported.
