Public Prosecutor Office Professionals Day in Russia Date in the current year: January 12, 2016

Public Prosecutor Office Professionals Day in Russia January 12 is Public Prosecutor Office Professionals Day. This professional holiday was established in 1995.

The date of January 12 wasn't chosen randomly. On January 12, 1722, Peter the Great signed a decree that appointed the General Prosecutor. Today this date is considered as the birthday of the Office of Public Prosecutor.

According to the decree, college prosecutors were to report to the General Prosecutor, and he got all major duties and authorities of Senate supervision. Pavel Yaguzhinskiy was an outstanding General Prosecutor during the reign of Peter the Great. Yaguzhinskiy was so much of importance for government, that they said he played second fiddle to Peter the Great.

Institutions of the Office of Public Prosecutor play an important remedial role for the country. People go to the prosecutors with different issues that concern their life.

The Office of Public Prosecutor carries out its duties on the base of the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the Federal law “On the Procuracy of the Russian Federation”.
