Yury Chaika said Monday he has no plans for sweeping reform of the prosecutor's office
Russia's Justice Minister Yury Chaika, nominated Monday for the post of the country's prosecutor general, said Monday he has no plans for sweeping reform of the prosecutor's office. "The prosecutor's office should without doubt be reformed, and in many areas has already undergone reform. But all reforms should be done very carefully and deliberately," he told a session of the upper house of parliament's committee on legal and judicial issues. The justice minister said he would oppose hiving off the prosecutor's office's investigative functions, saying the office's investigative branch "justified itself." But he admitted Russia still had problems imposing the rule of law. He told the Federation Council committee that the prosecutor's office's oversight functions were "necessary today as never before, as the law is applied in far from all cases." Chaika also said prosecutors should keep tabs on the four multibillion-dollar national projects - education, healthcare, agriculture, and housing - highlighted by President Vladimir Putin in his state of the nation address May 10 in a bid to raise living standards, in order to make sure they moved forward legally. Chaika's candidacy for prosecutor general was supported Monday by the Federation Council's committee on legal and judicial matters. The Federation Council will consider his candidacy at a session June 23
