Article 59 of the Constitution of Ukraine States that every person living in Ukraine has the full right to use the services of a lawyer during investigative actions, such as a search.
Applying for assistance to a criminal lawyer of Kasyanenko & Partners Law Company allows you to get all the guarantees that during the search and other investigative actions will not be violated the rights and freedoms of a citizen.
Ukrainian legislation indicates that the search is conducted exclusively by a prosecutor or investigator, and their names are indicated in the court ruling. The lawyer during the investigation, during the search, will help to double-check the legality of such a document and the investigative action itself.
Article 223 of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine indicates that at least two witnesses are present during the search. This will help you avoid all sorts of fraud during these actions.
When searching, the lawyer controls all legal processes, and in case of violations of the search procedure, enters information in the protocol.
At the end of the search procedure, the investigator must give the citizen who was searched a second copy of the protocol. In the process of searching, it is necessary to observe all the actions of the investigator and other participants very carefully. There are often situations when police officers / prosecutors plant fake bills, fake papers, weapons, drugs, and other things. In the event of the presence of unauthorized persons during the search, the lawyer must enter information into the protocol and identify all participants in the search or other investigative actions.
A criminal lawyer will help you boldly defend your rights, according to the prescribed laws of Ukraine on search and other investigative actions. It is important to take extra care during excessive attention from law enforcement agencies. In case of violation of your rights, it is recommended to immediately seek the help of a criminal lawyer to protect yourself from illegal actions and accusations by law enforcement officers without solid evidence.
