Comments on the basic principles of the bill “On Forensic Services” by Professor K. K. Seytenov in the TV programme “The Bill”

The Bill “On Forensic Services”, which has been approved by the Majilis, is at the moment pending approval by the Senate.  The aim of this bill is to raise the level of the forensic services to meet the international accreditation standards.

According to experts, passing this bill will help to strengthen the staff and the infrastructure of the forensic services, create the conditions for establishing the research potential of forensic experts, stimulate further development of the institute of non-governmental (private) forensic services, increase legal protection of the citizens and organisations participating in the legal processes, and raise the prestige of the forensic professionals and their social security.

Implementing these measures will require appropriate legal support, which means that it will be necessary to bring into compliance those legal norms which regulate the activities of forensic service providers.

In his interview to Khabar 24 TV channel, the director of KAZGUU Forensics Institute, Professor, Doctor of Law, K. K. Seytkenov, remarked on the novelty introduced by the bill – the Chamber of Forensic Experts.  The Chamber is a non-commercial, self-financing professional organisation, created in order to protect the rights in legal interests of its members, to coordinate their activities, and to ensure that they operate in accordance with the RK Law on Forensic Services.

The forthcoming work on developing the non-governmental (private) institute of forensic services is planned to be conducted stage-wise, as part of the joint project of the World Bank and the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan “Strengthening the Forensic Capacity”.  The role of project consultants will be played by a consortium comprised of KAZGUU University; Key Forensic Services Ltd. (KFS), a leading company in forensics; King’s College London (KCL), a major British research university; and consulting companies QPA Strategies Ltd. (London) and Astana Garant Consulting (Astana).

As the head of one of the key components of the project, Professor K. K. Seytenov, in collaboration with other legal experts, is conducting a study of international legal and institutional practices of forensic organisations.  Based on the results of this study, the best practices are planned to be incorporated into the legislation and the system of forensic services in Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan pays special attention to the development of its human resources potential, and such reforms require properly designed and comprehensive approaches.

For example, during 2014-2016 26 employees of the Center of Forensic Expertise had a chance to undertake year-long custom training at the London School of Economics and Political Science funded by the Bolashak program.

As part of further professional development for these forensic experts and under the umbrella of the Strengthening Forensic Expertise project by the Ministry of Justice and the World Bank, a training seminar titled ‘Development of team values for change agents’ was organised by KAZGUU University.

The main objective of this seminar was enhancement of the managerial potential. Representatives from the Ministry of Justice believe that such training sessions not only allow its staff to grow personally but also provide opportunities to share experiences with colleagues. According to Askar Umbetaliyev, ‘…this training programme gathered together and united managerial staff and expert professionals who are our potential as in the future we expect them to apply their experience at regional offices of the Center of Forensic Expertise…’.   

The participants enjoyed specially developed interactive exercises. The seminar was conducted in two parts: forming a picture of the future, an ideal system of management; and emotional intelligence for further development. The seminar programme was designed and delivered by Gulmira Mukhanova and Aidar Abrayev, academics from KAZGUU’s business school.

Forensic experts from all parts of the country were able to exchange ideas in an informal and engaging atmosphere, discuss current problems, analyse situations they face in their everyday professional life, as well as offer insights and assessments to each other. The participants noted that they found something very relevant and new, and had a chance to meet colleagues and share opinions. It was hoped that this seminar would continue and become a tradition.

At the end of the seminar Yury Bikbaev, Project Leader, emphasized that ‘development of forensic expertise requires continuous professional growth of its experts, and orientation on constant and uninterrupted executive education is one of tools to ensure investment into the country’s prosperity. We are very pleased that our project has an opportunity to support these reforms and help develop forensic experts for future managerial roles. We hope to have more of such opportunities and do more in this area.’
