The spring session of the Milli Majlis has come to an end. Amendments were made to some laws at the final sitting. The first issue on the agenda was amendments to the Code of Administrative Offences. It was noted that the amendments mainly targeted prevention of cutting off natural gas, electricity or heating lines without written notification. After the amendments are made, officers cutting off supply lines without a written notification will be brought to responsibility. The draft law was adopted following the discussions. Another amended law was “on traffic rules”. The amendment proposed to the law gives opportunity to a person who committed the administrative offense to pay a fine using the certain executive power body’s employee’s special technical means via plastic card. The adopted law and the amount of appointed fine are shown in the protocol. According to another annex, within 30 days after the decision on application of the administrative punishment comes into force, the person, who commits administrative offence, must pay the fine based on notification. If the person, on whom administrative punishment is imposed, executes the decision immediately or within three days after the decision comes into force, he/she is freed from 10% of the fine. Default interest of 2% of the amount of the fine will be imposed on the person, who does not pay the fine within this period (30 working days) without good reason. In case the fine is not paid within two months, the court or relevant executive authority, which made the decision, passes judgment to detain the vehicle that the person was driving when committed the administrative offence. If the fine is not paid during 3 months, the law on delimitation of person’s right to use transport will be adopted and will be directed to the obligatory execution for the ensure of fine payment. According to the amendments to the law, the relevant amendments were made to the Administrative Code. According to the amendment, the driving permit of the persons, who fail to pay the fine for administrative offence within three months, will be restricted to six months. Amendments were also made to the Administrative Offences, Civil Procedure, Criminal and Execution of Judgments Codes. According to the amendments to the last two codes, the “custodial restraint” penalty has been excluded from the system of penalties and has been replaced with correctional labor or fine. The draft laws were put to vote and adopted. Thereby, the spring session of the Milli Majlis ended…
