County Administrative Court reinstated First Deputy Prosecutor General Mykola Golomsha at his post after the dismissal on lustration, as the court reported.

The court recognized the dismissal of Golomsha as illegal and order to reinstate him in office.

“The post occupied by Mykola Golomsha at the Prosecutor General’s Office was not a political one; the legality of the procedures used against the claimant is also not provided and it grounds the conclusion on the failure to substantiate the legality of the making of the contested decision on the grounds mentioned in it; it is sufficient and independent decision to abolish the decision on the dismissal,” the message said.
