Holodnitsky: Meeting of Committee on regulations of the Verkhovna Rada is sometimes like a circus

Only a court can decide the question of guilt, and the meeting of the Committee on rules and organization of work of the Verkhovna Rada should not resemble quasi-judicial proceedings. This was stated by the head of the Specialized anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office (SAP) Nazar Golodnitsky in Facebook following the meeting devoted to removal of inviolability from the people’s Deputy from «popular front» Eugene Dade.

He noted that today’s meeting of the Committee, «sometimes resembled a circus.»

«According to Ukrainian law, all persons are equal before the law. Why the deputies did not provide opportunities for the pre-trial investigation bodies to conduct proper investigations, as it would with «ordinary» citizens, and to establish, there are grounds for drawing up the indictment, or not?» – he wrote.

Holodnitsky noted that the Committee on rules should not replace whole Parliament and all the court, and actually «usurped the decision» on granting consent to criminal prosecution of deputies.

«SAP will prepare and send new representation about consent on bringing to criminal liability of the above mentioned national Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. Only a court can decide the question of guilt, and the meeting of the Committee should not resemble quasi-judicial proceedings. We will continue to defend our position at the meetings of this Committee and other MPs this week», – he stressed.
