Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said on Tuesday that Prosecutor General’s Office has enough evidence to serve charges against a non-affiliated MP Oles Dovhy. He announced this during the session of Verkhovna Rada Committee on consideration of the filing allowing prosecution of Oles Dovhy on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“We believe we have enough materials to announce suspicion to the acting people's deputy Oles Dovhy that he, clearly realizing, after personally signing visa for consideration of petition of the housing cooperative "Technologist", that they ask for 100 hectares in the reserve of local importance, he put it on the agenda of the Kyiv City Council breaching the procedure, manipulating the head of the relevant commission Mr. Yevlakh, to act in a certain way. He also submitted for voting material without their distribution which is a violation of the rules. We believe that this testifies to the abuse of official duties of Kyiv City Council secretary Oles Dovhy, which led to serious consequences, namely the removal from Kyiv community ownership of the of land of over 3 million dollars’ worth,” Lutsenko said.
Dovhy claims that he does not hold onto immunity and will defend himself by legal means in court.
“I will defend myself, like anyone would do, legally in court. I do not hold on to immunity, I've said it many times. As a politician and a person I will be consistent in this question,” Dovhy said.
As it was reported earlier another MP can be deprived of immunity. Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko said he intended to ask parliament to remove the immunity of people’s deputy Yevheny Bakulin in case on purchase of drilling rigs at inflated prices.
