It has become a working norm to hold meetings and other discussion meetings in the format of a videoconference. The reporting event of the Ministry of Justice was held in this mode today. The President of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic Vadim Krasnoselsky took part in the work of the Collegium of the PMR Ministry of Justice. A report on the main directions and performance indicators of the department as well as information on the tasks facing the ministry was voiced by its head Alexandra Tumba.
The Minister spoke about the work of the Office of the Ministry of Justice, aimed at improving the legal framework, as well as the ongoing legal and anti-corruption examination of documents. She drew attention to the incomplete adherence to such principles of law-making activities as unity, completeness and consistency of legal acts, which creates difficulties in application and difficulties in interpreting the norms. Another problematic aspect is the duplicate submission to the Ministry of Justice of projects that are identical in essence and content, the repeated examination of which leads to an irrational use of resources and an increase in the deadlines for completing the tasks faced by the department. The PMR Minister of Justice called on the state authorities, when implementing law-making functions, to actively involve and more effectively use the law-making potential of specialized services at the stage of drafting legal acts.
Alexandra Tumba spoke about the work carried out by the ministry to create a reference electronic database of Pridnestrovian legislative acts. It is planned to take as a basis the developed Concept of the state information system, which is currently being approved by the Ministry of Digital Development. The system is expected to be put into operation in 2023.
The Speaker focused on the results of the activities of the registration service and notaries. More than two hundred legal entities, branches and representative offices were entered into the State Register in 2021 (slightly less than in 2020). State notaries performed 60177 actions, and private notaries almost 89000 during the year. Alexandra Tumba said that the problem is the placement of archival funds, considering the large number of documents that require eternal storage. The problem is most acute in Dubossary, Rybnitsa and Grigoriopol. The Minister considers it expedient to revise the list by isolating duplicate and outdated technical documents. The issue of expanding the area of premises intended for the storage of archives remains open.
The Minister informed that 81 objects of intellectual property were registered in the reporting period. Pridnestrovians used the "Portal of Public Services of the PMR" information system 5224 times. The State Supervision Service held 1151 events. The number of citizens' appeals is 927.

The territorial departments received 74612 documents, 72154 productions were completed.

There are facts of violation of existing norms. Alexandra Tumba gave examples. She said that there were facts of concealment of accidents at work. A part of the report was devoted to supervision measures in the housing and communal services sector. The violations that occur more often than others are named. The speaker mentioned domestic accidents that occurred when using gas. During the year, 33 people were injured, three of them died. The main reason is a gross violation of safety rules - both by users and employees of organizations responsible for the maintenance of devices.

She focused on the department’s activity plans for 2022.

Vadim Krasnoselsky spoke about the importance of interaction between the Ministry of Justice and government authorities, improving the legal framework, and improving the skills of specialists. He dwelled separately on the situation in the penitentiary system.
