Serhiy Kiral: Draft law on amber mining won’t be able to regulate the industry in the current conditions

Samopomich Union faction did not vote for the bill on production and sale of amber.

As noted by Samopomich MP Serhiy Kiral, the main problem of the draft law is that it does not specify or define what kind of control over the activities in the field of amber extraction there should be. In addition, unless we put the situation with amber mining in the regions in order, bills like this one entail a big risk of creation of another corruption “feeder”.

“We know there are orders of both the President and the Interior Minister to restore order there. I also underscore that we have a very problematic situation concerning the reform of law enforcement and judicial reform, professional training of local governments’ employees. Therefore, there is a great danger that the problem of public institutions will turn the regulation of the amber extraction industry into another corruption scheme,” says Serhiy Kiral.
