Yarema does not preclude the appointment of a new Prosecutor General policy without legal education

Ярема не исключает возможности назначения новым генпрокурором политика без юридического образования

Former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Vitaly Yarema does not exclude the possibility that the new attorney General will be a politician. He said this on air of the “Prime Evening” on TV channel “112 Ukraine”.

“I do not exclude the possibility that a person will come-politician, the man is not a lawyer and will try to reform the Prosecutor’s office. I know Yury Vitalyevich very long time, we worked together at the Ministry. I know that he has a rod. He can resist and have their point of view…” he said.

He also commented on the information that the Committee on legislative support of law enforcement supported the bill, which will not allow the leader of the faction “Block of Petro Poroshenko” to become the attorney General.

“As for the draft law currently considered by the Verkhovna Rada on the appointment to all public prosecutors, and the local Prosecutor’s office, and other office workers that have no legal experience in the Prosecutor’s office, I believe that it is wrong. The functions that they perform, with regard to procedural guidance, require specific knowledge… of the attorney General, in my opinion, should be assigned to BP, which is a political body. Need to be appointed, for example, the High Council of justice, where there are experts, and representatives of the BP, and then be given the opportunity to be independent,” he added.
