1253th day from the beginning of Revolution of Dignity
In accordance with Article 123 of the Constitution of Ukraine the structure and operational procedures of the public prosecution bodies of Ukraine shall be determined by law.
Law of Ukraine "On Prosecutor’s Office" provides only two legal entities: Qualificatory-disciplinary commission of prosecutors (article 73) and National academy of Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine (article 80).
Ukrainian legislation considers two types of persons having legal capacity - natural persons and legal entities. Without doubt prosecutor's office is not an natural person. As we see Ukrainian legislation does not recognize its status as a legal entity too. So, the prosecutor's office is not a legal subject within the limits of the Ukrainian legislation.
Why General Prosecutor’s Office of Ukraine and Regional Prosecutor's Offices recognize themselves as legal entities and carry out legal transactions on behalf of legal entities?
