      It investigated crimes, brought criminals to trial, and prosecuted them. The Procuracy also supervised courts and penal facilities within its jurisdiction (see Soviet Union USSR - The Procuracy, ch. 19). The Supreme Soviet appointed the procurator general of the Soviet Union for a five-year term.   Although it has been more than 20 years since Communism crumbled in Central and Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, many scholars and politicians still wonder what the lifting of the Iron Curtain has really meant for these former Communist countries. And, because these countries were largely closed off to the world for so long, there has yet to be an all-inclusive study on their.

The successors of Peter I had not solved the problem of local administration.

Administrative law - Administrative law - The procurator system: The third system for ensuring administrative legality, called the Procuracy, was founded in Russia by Peter the Great inwho intended it to be the “eye of the tsar.” Catherine II issued a directive in stating that the procurator general and his staff were to supervise the execution of the laws in the provinces.

ISBN: OCLC Number: Notes: "Issued by the Documentation Office for East European Law, University of Leyden." Description. The Procurator General of the USSR (Генеральный прокурор СССР in Russian, or Generalnyi prokuror SSSR), was the highest functionary of the Office of Public Procurator of the USSR, responsible for the whole system of offices of public procurators and supervision of their activities on the territory of the Soviet Union.

History. The office of procurator had its historical Precursor: Procurator General of the Russian Empire. Procuracy, Russian Prokuratura, in the former Soviet legal system, a government bureau concerned with ensuring administrative legality.

The Soviet constitution invested the procurator general (Russian: generalny prokuror) with the responsibility of supervising the observance of the law by all government ministries and institutions subordinate to them, as well as by individual officials and. On November 7, (Octo old style), the soviet organizations made their successfulcoup d’ the battle cry of “all power to the soviets”, they overthrew the provisional government of Kerensky, and on November 24 the First Decree on Courts was signed.¹ With one stroke of the pen the entire judicial system of the Russian Empire was swept away.

Chapter IV. PROCURACY, PRELIMINARY INQUIRY, INVESTIGATION AND THE BAR was published in Soviet Administration of Criminal Law on page Abstract.

Two legal systems exist in the Soviet Union today, each functioning quite independently and bearing little resemblance to the other. The first, the one about which the average American citizen knows the least, is the legal system that, day in, day out, maintains law and order, enacts and enforces the law, and adjudicates the disputes that inevitably arise among citizens and.

See: Smith, The Soviet Procuracy and the Supervision of Administration 23 () [hereinafter Smith, The Soviet Procuracy]. Soviet jurists, as a group and as individu-als, are politically powerless.

In the present debate, in both legal scholarship and government circles, there are two concepts of procuracy supervision: one conservative and the other liberal in orientation.

The first concept is reflected in the Law on the Procuracy of ; the second in the “Conception of Judicial Reform,” approved in by the Russian Supreme Soviet.

28 Am. Comp. tions within the Soviet criminal justice system will suffice to give at least a superficial view of the general scope of current Soviet criminal justice. The institutions selected for scrutiny are the Soviet Procuracy, the Societ Judiciary, and the Soviet equivalent of the defense counsel, the advokat.

over administration by the courts is 'moderately' effective while, at least according to Chapter 4, citizens' complaints are the least effective means of control. The 'most effective' means of control constitutes the subject of the heart of the book, Chapter 5, on general supervision by the USSR Procuracy.

The MGB directed espionage networks at home and abroad, and also organized both domestic and foreign counterintelligence. I consider the courts, the procuracy, and the complaint mechanism as sites for citizens to lodge claims against abuse of office in late-Soviet and post-Soviet times.

After the collapse of the Soviet system there was an attempt to overcome the Soviet legacy, to strengthen legal institutions and establish administrative justice.
