January 18, 2017
The European Union Advisory Mission (EUAM) has discussed the electronic systems used for pre-trial investigations in the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine, at a round-table on 16 January. EUAM came together with the General Prosecutor’s Office (GPO) of Ukraine to discuss the challenges of the electronic system, such as the limited analytical and archival capability.
The Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations – used for recordings of criminal offences, decisions made during pre-trial investigations, tracking of suspects and judicial proceedings – is an online database that has 28,000 users in Ukraine, at the GPO, National Police of Ukraine, Security Service, State Fiscal Service, National Anti-Corruption Bureau and State Bureau of Investigation.
Attendees at the meeting also discussed the need to create an electronic system for criminal proceedings. Anzhela Stryzhevska, Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine, said: “Technologies should be in place to allow leaving behind a paper workload.
“The electronic system enhances security and protection of information. There are several challenges with its implementation, but I would like to thank EUAM and the international community for their support in this.”
