Public activists sue to get access to sessions of Verkhovna Rada

24.10.2014, 00:58

The coordinator of the website «Access to Truth» Alisa Ruban filed a lawsuit against the head of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksander Turchynov with a demand to grant access to open sessions of the Parliament to citizens. 

As early as on April 19 the amendments to the Rules and Regulations of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine became effective. According to these amendments, openness of the parliamentary sessions is secured by granting access to anypody. The procedure of granting access has to be approved by the head of the Verkhovna Rada. More than half a year has passed, but the procedure is still not in place.

The activisists submitted an appeal with the head of the Verkhovna Rada but were told the relevant committees were working on this issue.
