The Lviv OVA allowed TCC representatives to check documents on the street in order to properly implement mobilization measures for the period of the martial law legal regime.
In Ukraine, martial law has been extended until February 14, 2024. For the period of validity of this legal regime, the mobilization of citizens liable for military service of military age has also been extended. To improve the mobilization process, in the Lviv region, representatives of the TCC and the joint venture received expanded powers. This order was issued by the Lviv Regional Military Administration (OVA).
By law, representatives of the police and several other law enforcement agencies can stop people on the street and check their identity documents. Representatives of the TCC and the joint venture do not have such powers. In this regard, military commissars often cooperate with the police, patrolling the streets together. Such cooperation makes it possible to legally stop men of military age on the street, check their documents and serve summonses to the TCC.
The military administration of the Lviv region decided to simplify the work of military commissars by expanding the list of those who can check documents on the streets.
The order, which applies only to the Lviv region, states that “in order to properly implement mobilization measures in the territory of the Lviv region for the period of the legal regime of martial law,” employees of the Lviv Territorial Center for Recruitment and Social Support can check documents of citizens of military age.
The order of the Lviv Military Military District also obliges citizens liable for military service to carry identification documents and military registration documents (certificate of registration at a conscription station, military ID or temporary certificate of a person liable for military service) and present them upon request of authorized representatives of the TCC.
The order remains in effect until martial law is lifted or suspended or until a separate order is issued “whichever occurs first.”
Let us remind you that representatives of the TCC and SP who are engaged in serving summons to those liable for military service can be asked to present documents, because not everyone has such authority. The Ministry of Justice of Ukraine explained what documents TCC employees should have when serving a summons.
Previously Focus wrote that TCC employees do not have the right to check citizens’ documents. To avoid violations of their rights, citizens should be aware that the police do not have the right to serve subpoenas, and TCC employees are not authorized to check documents.
