The Supreme Court has concluded regarding the time limits of inquiry

Due to the absence of established time limits for inquiry in the Criminal Procedural Code of Ukraine, the Supreme Court made a relevant conclusion.

Thus, the court stated that the time limits of inquiry for criminal misdemeanors should not be greater than for minor crimes. The decision was made in case No. 461/9707/21 taking into account that criminal misdemeanors are less socially dangerous acts compared to minor crimes.

Therefore, the time limits of inquiry from the moment of entering information on a criminal misdemeanor into the Unified Register of Pretrial Investigations until the day of notification to the person of suspicion shall be 12 months.
