Ukraine is a law-governed state? The law is one for all, the law is above all, the rule of law… Where are the Ukrainian populists now, who so pathetically made all these speeches? Where are the European parliamentarians, who so vehemently defend Western values?Let them tell you now why the Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yury Lutsenko believes that the law should be used when it is convenient, and that it can also be violated.
Answering the question why in Ukraine people stay in pre-trial investigation cells without charges, Yury Lutsenko said that due to the lack of accurate information on the timing of the exchange of prisoners, he “has to reopen the case every time.” Moreover, the head of the Prosecutor General’s Office admitted that “we have a problem, because we can neither let go of a person, nor detain him.”
In total, according to Lutsenko, about 100 people are currently detained without bringing charges for the purpose of future exchange. Thus, the State of Ukraine consciously confirms that legal manipulation takes place with the approval of senior officials. After all, Ukraine is Europe? Here they are, new European values.
