DOI: 10.13187/rjcl.2016.9.68CrossRef

The importance of the expert own initiative in dealing with the evidence is also highlighted.

Covert Post and Telecommunications Surveillance in Swiss Criminal Proceedings

Russian Journal of Comparative Law, 2016, Vol. (9), Is. 3, pp. 74-83.
DOI: 10.13187/rjcl.2016.9.74CrossRef

Abstract:
This article discusses the covert surveillance of post and telecommunications as a coercive measure in Swiss criminal proceedings. Since such surveillance interferes with a number of fundamental rights and freedoms, it should meet the requirements of human rights limitations. Firstly, the offence must constitute a so-called “catalogue offence” under Art. 269 para. 2 of the Swiss Code of Criminal Procedure. Further, there must be a strong evidence to suspect that such a catalogue offence has been committed in reality. In addition, the seriousness of the offence must justify the surveillance. Finally, previously undertaken investigative activities must have proven to be unsuccessful, or there are grounds to suspect that in absence of such surveillance the investigation will not succeed or will likely become disproportionately more complicated. Against this background, the authors analyze the latest amendments to the Federal Statute on the Surveillance of Post and Telecommunications (the BÜPF) and their impact on the conduct of criminal proceedings.

Liability of the Mediator in France and Russia

Russian Journal of Comparative Law, 2016, Vol. (9), Is. 3, pp. 84-90.
DOI: 10.13187/rjcl.2016.9.84CrossRef

Abstract:
This article undertakes comparative analysis of legal liability of the mediator in France and in Russia. Mediation is understood as an alternative method of dispute resolution which is widely-used in European countries. Mediation in France has been practiced for several decades. In Russia the Federal law on mediation was introduced only in 2010. This article attempts to identify both, common features and the differences, in legal regulation of mediation process in these two jurisdictions. Although the mediators bear similar types of liability in France and in Russia, legal approaches to establish such liability are different. Comprehension of legal liability of mediators entails examination of the following elements: regulation of failure to disclose the conflict of interest, breaches of specific contractual provisions, violations of confidentiality rules, false advertising, as well as engagement in legal practice.

EU Regulations on Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated Fishing (IUU): Implications for ASEAN Community Fisheries Legal Frameworks

Russian Journal of Comparative Law, 2016, Vol. (9), Is. 3, pp. 91-105.
DOI: 10.13187/rjcl.2016.9.91CrossRef

Abstract:
Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing is considered as a process which could undermine market competition and cause economic harm to fishermen, and legal fishing industry as a whole. The fish resulted from IUU fishing has the possibility to enter into the supply chain of extra and intra-regional fisheries trading system. Market is a backbone of the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) construction, where the regulatory and market policies must be favorable to the business environment and competition. Market distortion can cause large-scale loss in industrial fishing, from upstream industries to the downstream of fishery industries. It affects economic operators of marine fisheries. In the last decades the ASEAN as regional organization has been promoting fisheries management to reduce the illegal and destructive fishing. On the other hand, the EU is one of the successful economic regions where the member states integrate own markets into a single market. The EU common fisheries policy has elaborated through many improvements and changes along with the dynamics of the global economy the policies which conditioned the establishment of common fisheries market of a high standard. The common fisheries market is the central engine used by the EU to combat IUU fishing. Therefore, there are two questions raised in this study i.e., to what extent the ASEAN Community Fisheries Legal Framework harmonization is constructed under the AEC? What is the legal implication of the European Union IUU fishing regulations on the construction of the ASEAN Community Fisheries Legal Framework?

Review: European Union Law: a Textbook for Master’s Degree Students / ed. P. Biriukov and V. Tuliakov. Voronezh: VSU Publishing House, 2016. 476 p.

Russian Journal of Comparative Law, 2016, Vol. (9), Is. 3, pp. 106-108.
DOI: 10.13187/rjcl.2016.9.106CrossRef

Abstract:
This article is a review of the textbook “The Law of the European Union” [1], published by Voronezh State University (Russia). The textbook, comprising several contributions by Russian and Ukrainian legal scholars, adds to the existing collections of course materials on EU law. Since the events in East Ukraine have resulted in amendments to Article 65 of the 1993 RF Constitution, which nowadays states that the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol City are constitutive subjects of the Russian Federation, Russia-EU relationships have become increasingly complex. EU-driven economic sanctions and Russian-steered countersanctions have inevitably engendered manifold economic, political and socio-cultural consequences in Russia. In the light of the said events, studying the law of the European Union becomes especially significant for Russian law students. Such contributions by Russian and Ukrainian scholars scrutinizing the legal foundations of the European Union are timely and very welcome efforts in the sense of disseminating information about the EU among future legal professionals.
