Soboliev: Corrupt officials can take advantage of the amendments to the law on e-declarations

Amending the law “On electronic declaration” without discussion with the public may allow corrupt officials to talk about the unreliability of the system of e-declarations, says MP from the “Samopomich” faction, Yehor Soboliev.
“Any attempt to rewrite the law, which has recently begun to work, is extremely dangerous. There are risks that if we amend the law at this stage, some corrupt officials may state that by now the system has been unreliable. Subsequently, this may lead to the closure of this important to the society information,” Yehor Soboliev stressed.
He recalled that once MP Vadym Denysenko introduced for consideration the law aimed at disclosure of officials’ declarations on the Internet; however, during vote because of manipulations this requirement was completely eliminated.
“I talked to MP Tetiana Donets who has submitted the amendments to the legislation governing the work of the electronic declaration. I offered to withdraw the bill for MPs, together with the public to discuss which exactly legislative regulation is needed. Only when the law works, we will continue to think about how to expand it,” summed up Soboliev.
We shall recall that the system of electronic declaration started officially operating from September 1, 2016.
