The meeting of the Steering Committee of the Supervisory Board of the Netherlands-Ukraine Project "Probation and Alternative Sanctions in Ukraine" took place in Kiev

On July 18, the first meeting of the Steering Committee of the Supervisory Board of the Netherlands-Ukraine Project "Probation and Alternative Sanctions in Ukraine" took place in Kyiv with the participation of the leadership of the Probation center, Dutch experts, representatives of the judiciary, the prosecutor's office of the local authorities.

This project is aimed at coordinated solution of problem issues in the process of introducing an effective system of probation by familiarizing different participants in criminal justice with the opportunities provided by the probation institute. Together with its partners, the Center for International Legal Cooperation, the Netherlands Helsinki Union and the Center for Judicial Studies will work on the implementation of new legislation on probation, the development of its institutional capacity, the professional training of the involved specialists, raising public awareness and the strengthening of bilateral relations between the Netherlands and Ukraine.

Within the framework of the Ukrainian-Dutch cooperation, the practice of pre-trial report preparation is analyzed, the methodology of collecting statistical data of the activity of the probation bodies is discussed, round tables and trainings with participants of the criminal process concerning the preparation of a pre-trial report and the appointment of alternative punishments are regularly discussed. The creation of the Project Steering Committee was updated due to the complexity of establishing the probation system in Ukraine. "Prosecutors and judges do not have enough experience in probation, and therefore do not understand its opportunities and benefits," said Lino Brosius, project manager of the Center for International Legal Cooperation.

Participants of the meeting voiced the need to increase the professional competence of probation officers, judges and prosecutors. The head of the Probation Center Oleh Yanchuk agreed with the problematic issues in the probation system and added: "We are focusing on the training of" universal workers ", because not the profession is important, but the experience and knowledge that the probation personnel receive during their work. As part of the communication development strategy, we must emphasize the extent of the functions and powers of the probation system. "

Finally, the members of the Supervisory Board identified further prospects for working with judges and prosecutors in the pilot region and agreed a schedule of international events with the participation of all players in the criminal process.
