Ukraine’s Verkhovna Rada has created a Temporary Investigative Commission (TIC) to investigate attacks against the public figures.
TIC was headed by non-fractional MP Boryslav Bereza.
TIC is a collegiate body responsible for monitoring the investigation of issues that are of the “public interest.” Сreation of TIC must be supported by at least one-third of the Ukrainian parliament. Conclusions and decisions of TIC are not decisive for the investigation and the court.
TIC has quite a controversial legal status. A separate law on the TIC has not been adopted; today its activity is regulated by the Verkhovna Rada Regulations.
Back in 2009, the MPs attempted to adopt a law on TIC. Subsequently, this law was declared unconstitutional.
