UNIAN: Ukraine's Supreme Court says judges in Maidan rulings broke judicial oaths
The Supreme Court of Ukraine has recognized that three Maidan judges violated their judicial oaths
The Supreme Court of Ukraine has recognized that three judges – Alla Chalaya, Yulia Shvachach and Vitaliy Martsynkevych – violated their judicial oaths when issuing decisions on the detention of activists during the Maidan events in Ukraine, which occurred from late 2013 until 2014, according to a lawyer.
The judges of the Maidan will be held liable.
The Supreme Court of Ukraine yesterday put the matter to rest in judging whether the judges had violated their oaths when passing illegal rulings against Madian activists, and whether they will be, at least, dismissed," Roman Maselko, the lawyer for the Heavenly Hundred Heroes, as the dead Maidan activists are called, wrote on Facebook. The final verdict was issued on July 12, he added.
"Let me remind you – until recently, the Higher Administrative Court has been repealing most rulings by the High Council of Justice on the dismissal of the judges of the Maidan. The Administrative Court claimed that the judges had not violated anything. But the Supreme Court, having considered the cases of judges Chalaya, Shvachach and Martsynkevych, ruled that the conclusions by the High Council of Justice had been right, as these judges had broken their oaths. The Administrative Court's ruling on nullifying the conclusions was recognized as unlawful," Maselko wrote.
Maselko added that the Administrative Court's position had raised a number of questions. "Some decisions by the Administrative Court were, frankly, surprising," he noted.
