The MPs ask the Justice Ministry of Ukraine to explain the confiscation of pets of the debtor and their sale at the auction as Viktoria Syumar from the European Solidarity Party filed a proper parliamentary proposal.
The lawmaker is interested in the conditions of maintenance of the pets after their confiscation and legality of these actions.
“I would like to ask the justice minister, of course, how would he feel if his dog is taken for the debts…But I have just asked what norms are used to confiscate pets as property and the main issue where and how they are kept…In the results, we will elaborate amendments to the laws,” Syumar wrote.
As we reported, in Izmail, Odesa region, the dog was confiscated from its owner, who is a debtor, and was sold at the auction for 18,8 dollars. Bidding was conducted at the SETAM Internet platform.
Head of the Ministry, Denys Maliuska, stated that animals could be taken away in Ukraine due to debts.
As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine’s Ministry of Social Policy, there will be no significant increase in the poverty rate this year - it will increase by only 6.5% compared to last year.
