"Criminal proceedings under Article 109 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine ("Actions aimed at forceful change or overthrow of the constitutional order or take-over of government") against judges of the Constitutional Court have been registered, the relevant information has been entered into the Unified Register of Pre-trial Investigations and sent to the State Bureau of Investigation," the statement said.
As we reported earlier, the criminal responsibility for a false declaration was recognized by the Constitutional Court as such that does not correspond to the Main law of Ukraine.
As a result, NACP was obliged to close the register of electronic declarations in order to fulfill the court's decision.
The agency believes that the judges canceled the criminal responsibility in their own interests.
Meanwhile, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky submitted draft law No.4288 for the Parliament's consideration. The bill offers MPs to deprive the Constitutional Court judges of their authorities and to restore the law on declaration that the Court had previously canceled.
