Лукаш: Судьи не хотят оценивать законность переименования Днепра

Dnipro – the city and the river

According to the lawyer, they massively take the rejection.

Judges of the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine in Kyiv, which addressed the issue of renaming of the city of Dnepropetrovsk in the Dnieper, gradually emerging from the process: today about rejection said five of the nine members of the expanded Board. Wrote about this on his page in Facebook lawyer Olena Lukash.

“The process to appeal the renaming of Dnepropetrovsk. Today, FIVE of the NINE judges hearing the case RECUSED himself. As in the rhyme about the ten little Indians,” – said Lukash.

They noted that for the first time in my practice is found with this situation.

“To say that the decision of Parliament on renaming of Dnipropetrovsk illegally, they CAN NOT, too much pressure, and to say that it is legal and to be of service mode – do NOT WANT. So take the challenge. Wonderful passes judicial reform in the courts paralyzed, don’t you think?”, – the lawyer noted.

We will remind, Rada was renamed Dnepropetrovsk in the Dnieper on may 19.

According to public opinion polls, the majority of residents were in favour of retaining the old name, but they have long called it the Dnieper.

October 16, the constitutional court of Ukraine refused to consider the constitutionality of the renaming of Dnepropetrovsk in the Dnieper. The case went to the Supreme Administrative court.
