Russia's Federation Council backs judge oath terms

15:36 10/07/2019

MOSCOW, July 10 (RAPSI) – The Federation Council on Wednesday approved a bill establishing certain terms for judges to take their oaths, according to the information published on the website of the parliament’s upper house.

The bill stipulates that a judge must give such an oath within a month after taking the seat.

According to present legislation, a judge appointed for the first time has to undertake a ceremonial oath and takes a seat only after the ceremony is concluded. Legally, taking an oath assigns special constitutional rights to a judge meaning that he or she is ready to adhere to number of requirements and restrictions.

However, current law does not set the term for a judge to take an oath. Authors of the bill propose to complete the procedure within a month.
