At April 7 sitting of the NA State and Legal Affairs the draft law on Making Amendments and Addenda to the RA Administrative Proceedings Code authored by the Government was debated in the first reading.
Presenting the proposing amendments, the RA Deputy Minister of Justice Suren Grigoryan has noted that they are aimed at reducing the loading of the Administrative and Appeal Administrative Courts, promoting the examination of the cases within the reasonable term.
The necessity of oral trial is eliminated especially during the claim examination against complaining the decisions of fines made by the Road Police and against Yerevan Municipality, and in that case the parties’ participation is mainly not provided. The number of the administrative cases on legal relations of recognizing invalid the acts of the state, local self-government bodies and their officials has also increased.
Written or simplified order for examination of the administrative cases by the codes in force is not designed, which continuously has resulted in the increase of the courts’ loading. Thus, it is prroposed to invest written procedure in the administrative proceedings for the examination of the abovementioned cases.
The Deputy Minister informed that at the phase of the draft law revision the international experience has also been studied, particularly the experience of Germany, Estonia, the RF and Poland.
Emphasizing the necessity of the bill the co-rapporteur ARtur Davtyan urged his colleagues to vote for it.
The draft law was endorsed.
