The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko personally informed the MP from “Samopomich” Andriy Gurjiy about the open against him of criminal proceedings on the basis of assessments of the State fiscal service. This was written by Zhurzhiy on the page in Facebook.

“Today the attorney General told me personally that the criminal proceedings against me was based on the analyses of the SFS of Ukraine. If the tax debt is no,” – wrote the MP.

He expressed the belief that the criminal proceedings against him provoked by his demands to dismiss the head of Fiscal service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov and his Deputy Sergei Bilan.

“There is no doubt that the attorney General specifically called my name with the names of the former regions to discredit me and show to society that all members are equal,” added Zhurzhiy.

He said he wants “to protect themselves from the arbitrariness of law enforcement bodies, as an ordinary citizen without any immunity”.

The MP said that next week will address to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with a demand to deprive of it parliamentary immunity. However, this requires “urgent to vote for the bill No. 5487, developed by the faction “Self-help”, to simplify the procedures for bringing deputies to criminal responsibility”.

Recall, December 9, Yuri Lutsenko said that PGO has registered criminal proceedings on the five MPs who have declared more than 100 thousand dollars in cash and checks them for tax evasion. Among them – the people’s Deputy from “Opposition bloc” Nestor Shufrych from “BPP” Ruslan Demchak, the “Renaissance” Gennady Bobov, independent Oleksandr Suprunenko and Vyacheslav Konstantinovsky. In addition, the attorney General announced the opening of criminal proceedings against Andrei Georgia.
