President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych will sign the Criminal Procedure Code in the middle of May, President's aid on judicial system Andriy Portnov told a briefing, ForUm correspondent reports.

"Amendments, voted in the parliament, have been sent to Directorate General of the EU to undergo international expertise. The next week the adopted law on the Code will arrive in the President's Administration and the President will have 15 days to decide whether to sign it or to veto. By this time Ukraine should receive the conclusions of European experts. I believe the law will be signed in mid-May, and will come into force six months later, in November," the official said.

Portnov also pointed out he hoped for technical support of European experts to teach Ukraine's judges and prosecutors on the new Criminal Procedure Code within these six months before its coming into force.
