Justice Ministry to open access to data on progress of compulsory enforcement

Ukraine's Justice Ministry announced plans to provide a free access for any physical or legal person to the Single State Register of Enforcement Proceedings.

This was disclosed by Ukraine's Justice Minister Mykola Onishchuk at a meeting with Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs at the U.S. Department of State David A. Merkel.

According to the Ukrainian minister, access to such information is an important direction on the way to decreasing corruptive risks. The Ukrainian Justice Ministry therefore means to introduce an efficient control system over enforcement and work of public executors.

In particular, M. Onishchuk specified that it is supposed to make it possible to receive information about open enforcement proceedings regarding debtors - legal and physical persons - entrepreneurs. Furthermore, a free access will be provided to information about distrained property which is transferred for realization in terms of compulsory enforcement.
