After a series of high-profile arrests the test for the effectiveness of the judicial and law enforcement system is just beginning. This was stated by Vice-Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oksana Syroid.
“Resolution on the arrest of the judges of Pecherskyi court, the detention of ex-Finance Minister Yuriy Kolobov, the start of the trial on leader of the Party of Regions Oleksandr Yefremov, and on the other members of the Yanukovych’s regime should not turn out to be a pure show. Therefore, the next step should be a proper prosecutor’s justification for the accusations and objective consideration of these cases in the courts,” – she said.
According to the deputy, the arrests are no reason to rejoice, but the reason to even more scrutinize the actions of the Prosecutor General’s Office and judges.
“Do not forget that the cases of Yanukovych’s gang will be considered by those same judges whom we inherited from the system, which was built by Mr. Kivalov back then. Therefore, without proper deputies’ and public control the significant shifts should not be expected,”– said Oksana Syroid.
