Petersburg Diary has published Mikhail Ilyin’s comments in the article “The matter of staff recruitment will arise as soon as courts move to Petersburg”.
19 November 2012
The principal problem of movement of courts is recruitment of numerous staff with legal education, as Mikhail Ilyin, the chief lawyer of “S&K Vertical”, told to Petersburg Diary when commenting the news of possible movement of the Supreme Court and the Supreme Arbitration Court to Saint Petersburg.
“About 10% of highly qualified employees who are not judges moved to Saint Petersburg with movement of Constitution Court of the RF to Saint Petersburg. Accordingly, the problem will be twice as pressing with the new movement, as Mikhail Ilyin supposed. “I think that even accommodation which will be probably provided for the said employees will have no serious effect on the people’s unwillingness to change their place of residence”.
Vladimir Kozhin, Administrator of President’s Affairs, declared earlier that movement of the Supreme Court and the Supreme Arbitration Court to Saint Petersburg is evaluated in amount of RUR 50 milliard. He noticed that the process would take two years and a half. The idea of transfer of the Supreme Court and the Supreme Arbitration Court to Saint Petersburg was supported recently by President of the RF Vladimir Putin.
The Supreme Court on its behalf supposed that the Court would have a representative office in Moscow. The head of court Vyacheslav Lebedev told that activity of the Court in Petersburg would be impossible in the first years otherwise.
The head of Supreme Arbitration Court Anton Ivanov said he was planning to have a representative office of the Court in Moscow too.
