The reforms process in prosecutor offices around Ukraine is going on, and currently, every third local prosecutor is replaced across Ukraine – that is, over 600 offices. Yuriy Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General, said this while delivering a speech at the National Academy for Prosecution in Kyiv on October 22.
‘The contest to replace people on over 600 posts in local prosecutors’ offices is underway. We replace every third local prosecutor is replaced across Ukraine. People on another 600 posts on all levels of prosecution will be replaced, too. I’m very glad that public trust for the state policy increases; last year, we had only 12 percent of candidates who never worked in prosecution authorities. But this year, there are 70 percent of these candidates’, Lutsenko said.
As 112 International reported, Oleksandr Shatsky, the prosecutor of Zaporizhya region, told 112 Ukraine TV channel that the Prosecutor General’s Office launched campaign to fire him. He said that initially Yuriy Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, offered Shatsky to quit. After that a blackmail took place, he was even threatened by imprisonment.
Earlier SBU checked the activity of Zaporizhia region prosecutor’s office and revealed violations, which led to the security leakage.
