Audits conducted by public prosecutors in ten Russian regions
confirmed violations of the federal law УOn provision of access
to information about the performance by the state bodiesФ
and recommended to legislative assemblies of these regions
to amend these violations. Violations of the law have already
been amended in eight more regions after the same recommendations
by public prosecutors.
It should be noted that YABLOKO forwarded to Public Prosecutor
General a list of 29 regions violating the federal law envisaging
that state bodies should publish their draft laws in the Internet.
YABLOKO is certain that publication of draft laws Уis very
important for public control over adopted lawsФ.
Thus the law on releasing information was violated in ten
regions: the republics of Tyva, Altai, Ingushetia, Khakassia,
Karachayevo-Cherkessia and Mordovia, as well Rostov, Amur,
Kalinigrad and Sakhalin regions.
Eight more regions (Bryansk, Ryazan, Vladimir, Tumen, Kemerovo
and Penza regions, the Mari-El Republic and Chukotka autonomous
region) has already amended the violations or are in the process
of amending them.
In five more regions violations and drawbacks were amended
before prosecutorsТ audits.
However, answers from six remaining regions (the republics
of Komi, Chechnya, North Ossetia-Alania, the Orenburg region
and Maritime Area) from YABLOKOТs list have not been received.
