The expert clarifies, that the law №0949 main problem is that sanctions prescribed when falling short to meet its requirements are too soft.

The expert clarifies, that the law №0949 main problem is that sanctions prescribed when falling short to meet its requirements are too soft. That has led to the fact, that the registration in a spender`s personal cabinet has since august slowed significantly.
As CASE Ukraine`s Development Manager Yevhen Shulga says, the most problematic registrants are the state owned enterprises. ‘As of August 31, 2016, 85% of state-owned enterprises are violators of the law ‘On the open use of public funds’. They have not even registered their cabinets to report on their activities in 2015’, the expert says.
Alexander Opanasenko, MP, presented a common vision of the public and MPs to address the law`s weakness. He presented the Law №5061, which was registered in the Parliament on September 15, 2016. In particular, the main innovations are as follows:
– Increase in responsibility for the law`s implementation failures;
– Procedure for appeal and violators` penalties establishing are more clearly detailed;
– In addition to state spending the web portal will be accompanied with the state budget revenues.
The last amendment, in particular, would allow Ukrainian to see what businesses pay taxes to the budget and how much they do that, as well as how much state enterprises earn.
The bill is currently under one of the Parliament Committee`s consideration. Experts expressed the hope that it will be definitely considered this year
