The new Criminal Procedure Code extends the provisions on international cooperation in criminal proceedings, Ukrinform reports.

This was stated by Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka during his meeting with Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble, the press service of the prosecutor general's office reported.
"In particular, the relevant section of the Criminal Procedure Code regulates the issues of international legal assistance in conducting proceedings, extradition, criminal prosecution in the adoption and implementation of foreign courts' judgments," Pshonka said.

According to the prosecutor general, the new law of Ukraine on prosecutor's office will focus on the national characteristics of the legal system.

"Over the past year, changes were made to 46 articles of the current law on prosecutor's office, out of its 56 articles in all. Although the amendment is not completed, and the new law on prosecutor's office, which is being actively developed, will take into account not only the experience of European countries and international standards, and focus on the national aspects of the legal system, but also, which is most importantly, will meet the demands of our society for the protection of the environmental, social, budgetary, land rights of people and interests of the state," Pshonka said.
At the same time, he informed that the comprehensive reform of criminal justice in Ukraine continues.

"In May of this year, for example, a working group was established to prepare proposals to the draft law of Ukraine on criminal offenses and the subsequent changes that are relevant to reform of the criminal justice system. Such a document would significantly reduce the burden on investigators, help towards the observance of a reasonable period of investigation of cases, and will be one of the factors of humanization of the Criminal Code of Ukraine," Pshonka concluded.
