The vote for attorney General may be associated with bids on “Ukrnafta”, – Wojcicki

Голосование за генпрокурора может быть связано с торгами по "Укрнафте", - Войцицкая

Tomorrow will be a meeting of the Supervisory Board of the company “Ukrnafta”, which might be related to tomorrow’s vote in Parliament for the bill on the public Prosecutor without legal training. This was in the “Prime Evening” to “112 Ukraine” said the MP from the “Samopomich” Victoria Wojcicki.

“I have suggested that we have an interesting coincidence. Tomorrow the Parliament considered a draft law on the public Prosecutor, and at the same time tomorrow there is a meeting of the Supervisory Board of the company “Ukrnafta”. One of the major shareholders are representatives of group “Privat”, which control the respective members in Parliament. There is speculation that, maybe, just vote on the Prosecutor General may be the subject of bargaining over these decisions that need to be taken to “Ukrnafta”, namely the question of actually closing his eyes to the shameful situation in 2015, when through the scheme were withdrawn 18 billion USD from the company to the intermediary companies, and actually half of them already exist. It was artificially created scheme, which has led to the fact that “Ukrnafta” is not paid to the budget more than 10 billion UAH”, – said the MP.

We will remind, the Verkhovna Rada Committee on legislative support of law enforcement recommended Parliament to adopt as a basis the bill on amendments to some legislative acts concerning the activities of the General Prosecutor’s office, which submitted to the Parliament today only.

The draft law provides that the office of the Prosecutor General of Ukraine can be appointed the citizen of Ukraine who has higher education and work experience in the field of law or experience in legislative and/or law enforcement on not less than five years.

On Tuesday, Parliament failed in the first reading the reform of the General Prosecutor’s office concerning the possibility of the appointment of the public Prosecutor without legal training. Voted for the bill twice, the first time the initiative gained 224 votes, the second – 221. It was also reported that the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has postponed a working visit to the UK, in particular, in connection with the situation around the election of a new Prosecutor General.
