State Committee of Financial Investigations was founded in February 1992. There were also adopted new laws: The Law on Militia, The Law on Activities of Criminal Investigation Department, The Law on the Bar, The Law on Judicial System, The Law on Status of Judges. Work on Draft Criminal Code and Criminal Procedure Code is coming to an end. Life imprisonment, arrest and new corpus delictaes such as forming of criminal organization, legalisation of criminal incomes, compulsion to conclude contract were included in the codes. The disposition of criminal prosecution changed as well. The number of cases of private prosecution increased, to 14, private-public prosecution -to 17, accelerated prosecution - to 37 cases. Measures to ensure the safety of participants of criminal trial, confidence of information about a person on trial, anonymous investigation, close court sittings, emancipation from appearance in court, prohibition to divulge information, caution, home arrest were also new to our judicial system.
