“Samopomich” explained why the Parliament failed to adopt the law on management of confiscated property

The bills on management of confiscated property of corrupt officials were not voted yesterday because the MPs think about how these laws will affect them and vote not for the laws but for the fear of losing their ill-gotten gains.

This was stated by the Deputy Chairman of the “Samopomich” faction, the Chairman of the anti-corruption committee, Yehor Soboliev.

He noted that the draft law #3040 on accounting, storage, control of seized property of oligarchs, criminals, people from previous and current government has no risks and in no way violates people’s rights.

“There are great chances that we will adopt this law next week. And yesterday’s hysteria was connected not with the law itself but with the fear. People were shouting that “Soboliev’s committee hasn’t considered anything”. However, in fact, we had three meetings dedicated to this law, we had airways, ministers, open discussions,” stated the deputy.

He also noted that the statement that following the adoption of this law all the property would be taken away from poor people and given to some swindlers – was the manipulation.

“On the contrary, at present a judge and an investigator take away the property and sell it to a related party, or some swindlers. The law provides for the property being transferred to a state company, and only this property can be transferred on which there is a court decision on arrest and deprivation of the right to use. Moreover, it provides for an open registry, a public council, an open mechanism for electing the head, and external audit,” said Soboliev.
