The draft law “On banned structures,” whose third reading is to take place in the Estonian parliament on Thursday, this week, runs counter to some provisions of the Estonian Constitution
The draft law “On banned structures,” whose third reading is to take place in the Estonian parliament on Thursday, this week, runs counter to some provisions of the Estonian Constitution. This is the opinion of Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, circulated in a report of his press service on Wednesday. During the second reading of the draft law, which ended in the parliament on Tuesday, amendments were made to the text of the document, which provide for the dismantling of the Monument to the Liberator Soldier, in the central part of Tallinn, which commemorates those who liberated the city from Nazi invasion. According to the version of the draft law, adopted by the majority of the Estonian legislators, the government will be assigned to begin the dismantling of the Monument within 30 days after its coming into force. According to the procedure, which is in effect in Estonia, a law adopted by the parliament comes into force only after it is approved by the president and after its text is published by the state bulletin of legal acts. “I cannot lecture the MPs on what they should do during the final voting, but I hope the last days of the work of the present parliament will not be darkened by faulty law-making,” the Estonian president stressed. Prior to his election to the post of Estonian president, Toomas Hendrik Ilves was a member of the European Parliament from the Social Democratic Party. The Social Democratic Party supported the draft law “On banned structures,” but Jarno Laur, a representative of the party faction, said: “We supported the initial version of the draft law, because it could help avoid the appearance in the republic of the monuments, which would be a source of discord and tension. Now the draft law itself has become a source of discord.”
