He said this during today's meeting with Petro Poroshenko Block deputies, Censor.NET reports quoting Lutsenko's press secretary Larysa Sarhan.
At present, the rules require a separate vote to allow each of the three actions: prosecution, apprehension, and arrest. Accordingly, these should be different motions by the PGO. However, according to Lutsenko, a notion of arrest is not stipulated by the current Criminal Procedure Code.
"Since no such thing as arrest is stipulated by the Criminal Procedure Code, it would be logical to amend the rules and put "a preventive measure determined by court" instead of "arrest"," Lutsenko wrote.
Lutsenko also believes it is necessary to amend legislation so that law enforcers could confiscate travel documents or suspend such documents immediately after a motion is introduced, not after an MP is stripped of immunity: "It is necessary to work out an amendment, because its absence suggests a possibility to escape, with the parliament and the PGO being accused of it."
