About enhancement and perspective activities of economic courts of the Republic of Belarus

The analysis of the disputes considered by economic courts of the Republic of Belarus in 9 months 1996 shows that the crisis phenomena taking place in economy of the state in general considerably are aggravated with numerous violations of legality as from certain subjects of managing, and the violations allowed in the field of management.

From total quantity receivership proceeding constitute absolute majority (89%). Practically all claims are satisfied (94%). Economic sanctions on 1, of one trillion rubles are applied to persons which allowed different offenses. Such high percent of udovletvoryaemost of claims, and also economic sanctions demonstrate mass non-execution of contractual commitments and rules of law by subjects of managing of different patterns of ownership.

More than twice the number of disputes over payments increased. On these cases of the company of the state pattern of ownership in 60% of cases acted as defendants and in 30% - claimants. At the same time by 5 times the number of claims of prosecutors in protection of interests of the companies of different patterns of ownership, almost twice - claims of the state tax authorities increased. About 20 billion rubles of the hidden income, shortages on taxes, financial sanctions are exacted only from physical litspredprinimatel.

The number of disputes of banks among themselves, including with participation of National Bank of the Republic of Belarus continues to increase. Many creditors address with claims for recognition of banks economically insolvent and bankrupts. Nature of these disputes testifies to massive faults in system of credit regulation, methodology of interbank calculations, the organization of control of activities of banks from National Bank of the Republic of Belarus.

Due to the imperfection of legal regulation in the field of capital construction, and especially housing constructions, including with business participation, arises disputes on protection of the rights and legitimate interests of physical persons and legal entities more and more.

The number of appeals to courts of subjects of managing about recognition of acts of the state and other bodies (the central state bodies, executive committees) invalid in connection with contradiction to their current legislation does not decrease. Most of all complaints from the companies of different patterns of ownership express to acts of National Bank of the Republic of Belarus, tax authorities, executive committees. The Udovletvoryaemost of these claims courts reaches 60-70% in a number of regions. On the considered cases such violations from the called bodies are revealed as: exceeding of the competence, non-compliance with procedure for the publication of acts, unreasonable expansion of operation of acts in space and in time.

However economic courts by hearing of cases were quite often limited to pronouncement only of decisions on the substance of dispute, without reacting to the revealed violations. The analysis of court practice on the most urgent categories of cases was not always performed, authorities and law enforcement agencies were informed, suggestions for improvement of the current legislation were made. Quality of implementation of justice did not change. By hearing of cases violations of the procedural law, oversimplification, unreasonable suspension and adjournment of production were allowed. Supervising instances seldom react to the revealed shortcomings for the purpose of their prevention. Such activities of economic courts not completely meet the modern requirements.
