Sobyanin's decrees adopted during the epidemic will be checked for the observance of the citizens' rights
The Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Health and Rospotrebnadzor were instructed to verify the use of documents adopted to fight against the spread of coronavirus infection, including decrees of Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
This order was given by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
- The Ministry of Justice of Russia, the Ministry of Health of Russia, Rospotrebnadzor to analyze, together with the Moscow government and the expert legal community, the practice of applying normative legal acts (including decrees of the Moscow Mayor) adopted to combat the spread of new coronavirus infection in the Russian Federation, paying particular attention to the provisions most affecting the rights and interests of citizens, the document says on a government website.
Recall that on April 3, a resident of the capital, Dmitry Kisiev, filed a lawsuit in the Moscow City Court, demanding that paragraph 2 of the mayor’s decree of March 23, No. 26-UM, be declared invalid as inappropriate to Russian law. The lawsuit stated that restrictions on the movement of citizens can be announced only with the introduction of the quarantine regime and the corresponding order of the chief medical officer.
The illegality of decrees of Moscow mayors was also mentioned in a collective lawsuit, initiated by Denis Shenderovich, a municipal deputy of the Kuntsevo district. Moscow City Hall said that the lawsuit is not substantiated, and the system of passes does not violate the right to inviolability of life, family secrets and freedom of movement.
The law on the introduction of fines for violation of the self-isolation regime was previously signed by the capital's mayor Sergei Sobyanin. Lawyers expressed confidence that the city authorities have no right to fine Muscovites for violating the quarantine.
It should be noted that the Moscow City Duma deputy Pavel Tarasov criticized measures to combat coronavirus by the authorities.
