Prosecutors saved the land in Serednye
Prosecutors did not allow Serednye village council to illegally rent out the land plot in area of 10 hectares with normative monetary value of nearly 5,300,000 UAH
Uzhgorod Interdistrict Prosecutor's Office, according to the results of the inspection in Serednye village council, found out that officials, contrary to the law, decided to transfer 10 hectares of agricultural land to a company for accommodation of the waste processing facility.
As Uzhgorod interdistrict prosecutor Oleksandr Andryshyn reported, by their decision, the village council approved a land use project regarding the allocation of 10 hectares of land with normative monetary value of nearly 5,300,000 UAH for rent to accommodate waste processing facility. According to the agreement, the land was granted for 49 years subject to payment of rent in the amount of 5% of the normative monetary value.
However, during the prosecutors' inspection, it was found out that the said decision of the session had been adopted contrary to the requirements of Part 9 of Art. 123, Art. 207 of the Land Code of Ukraine, as the decision of the village council did not approve the calculation of agricultural production loss (which amounts to over 345,000 UAH) caused by the exclusion of the agricultural land from Serednye village council in order to accommodate the waste processing facility, and accordingly officials of the said company did not pay that money. In addition, the village council did no take measures to enforce the recovery of losses.
As a result of the found violations, the Interdistrict Prosecutor's Office ordered the head of the village council to take measures for immediate elimination of revealed violations, which order has currently been considered and fulfilled.
Thus, the decision of Serednye village council, which approved the project on land use for allocation of 10 hectares of land to accommodate the waste processing facility has been canceled, and the guilty officer has been disciplined.
