MOSCOW, June 25 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika is concerned about a growing number of unfounded refusals to institute criminal proceedings on information about crime by agencies of investigation.
Addressing the board of the General Prosecutor’s Office, he said “any violation in this sphere has sizable influence on the securing of constitutional rights of the citizens”. He marked that at the present moment, “each third ruling on the refusal to initiate criminal proceeding is passed with the violation of law”. In 2012, the number of such violations revealed by prosecutors grew 11 percent - to 2.6 million.
“This statistics testifies on the one hand to more active prosecutor’s supervision, and on the other hand such stalling of decision making often results in the expiry of statute of limitations, and negatively tells on the enforcement of the rights of injured persons, access to justice, and the carrying out of investigation within reasonable timeframe,” Chaika stressed.
