The Ukrainian office of Transparency International, filed a lawsuit against Prosecutor General, Military Prosecutor of the forces ATO and GP Information court system with the requirement to publish the court’s verdict, which had been confiscated $1.5 billion “criminal group of Yanukovych.” About it reports a press-service of representation.
The TI representative office in Ukraine requires the cancellation of illegal decisions on the classification of this sentence.
GP Information of the judiciary, which is obliged to publish the court decision in the open Unified registry of court decisions, has still not done so. The company has referred to the prohibition of the prosecution. The organization argued that the General Prosecutor’s office acknowledged the decision of the court a state secret.
“Transparency International Ukraine believes it is very disturbing because firstly, society still does not know, at whom, for what crimes, and exactly how much money was confiscated, and secondly, if a solution contains the technical imperfections, it will be appealed,” – say in the organization.
It recalled that already appealed to the Ukrainian Parliament with a request to make an official announcement of the results of the trial. However, as noted in TI, prosecutors ignored the meeting of the Committee and did not appear to justify their position to MPs.
“Instead, the Ukrainian representation of the TI received groundless charges of “disrupting the defense order” from the Chairman of the defence Committee of the Verkhovna Rada”, – stated in the message.
The court session on the case against the GPU, the military Prosecutor’s office and SE Information court systems are open to the public.
