How to appeal the protocol drawn up under Art. 130 Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses?

To begin with, you should familiarize yourself with the case materials that were transferred to the judicial authority under Art. 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses.

Then establish what the evidence base is based on for driving a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, usually, this is the testimony of witnesses, a protocol drawn up by the National Police, video recording of the offense. After that, all the evidence in the case should be analyzed for their relevance and admissibility.

If the employees of the National Police collected any evidence in violation of the current Ukrainian NPAs, then the court cannot take such evidence into account, and thus the guilt of the person will not be proven, which as a result entails the closure of the proceedings in the case and the release of the person from administrative responsibility

Judicial practice

Issuance of a report on the commission of an offense under Art. 130 of the Code of Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses during an air alert is the basis for closing the proceedings in the case.

He came to such conclusions that the District Court of Zhytomyr in case No. 295/355/23, where it noted that the fact of a person driving a car while intoxicated to deliver his family members to a bomb shelter does not justify the offender's actions, however, when drawing up a report, employees of the National Police should take into account that first of all it is necessary to ensure the safety of persons from missile strikes, and only then to draw up a protocol on the commission of an administrative offense under Part 1 of Article 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses.

A similar conclusion is also contained in No. 569/16321/23 of the Rivne Court of Appeal.

During martial law in the country, an important factor in the consideration of cases under Art. 130 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offenses is an implementation of volunteering.
