Lustration in Ukraine’s judicial system actually took place, the Ministry of justice

The head of the Department for lustration of the Ministry of justice Tetyana Kozachenko believes that Ukraine lustration of the judicial system actually took place. About this Kozachenko said on air «5 channel».

«Lustration of the judicial system actually did not work. It has already been completed,» — said Kozachenko.

In this regard, she recalled that the lustration of judges in Ukraine was the law on restoring confidence in the judiciary and the law about the cleansing power.

«Those are the criteria in which judges made decisions by Supervisory authorities or were not property tested. It’s all the courts have already passed, and even those Supreme court justices, for example, there are 46 people have all positive findings and for property verification. No problems,» — said Kozachenko.

In her opinion, lustration should not solve all the problems of society.

«It has not been the case for judges with only one system, since the order of dismissal of judges prescribed in the Constitution, and he is very serious», — said the head of the Department for lustration of the Ministry of justice.

According to her, even to the officials lustration is very difficult.

«Resistance is huge. Lustration posts are only about 5,000 civil servants, not more. However, this does not mean that lustration should all be fired. We have to work with law enforcement agencies. A crime must be punished. The responsibility should be mandatory in this case and the courts need to make fair decision,» — said Kozachenko.

As reported, on 10 June the constitutional court of Ukraine continued its consideration in a closed part of the plenary session several views regarding the constitutionality of several provisions of the Law of Ukraine «On cleaning power». KSU is considering a case on the constitutionality of several provisions of the law on lustration for the views of the Supreme court of Ukraine and 47 people’s deputies.

On 11 June it was reported that the decision of the constitutional court to abolish the lustration was already de facto accepted earlier, but it has not announced due to pressure from the public. This was stated by first Deputy Minister of justice Natalia Sevostyanova.
