Searches of relatives and assistants of the MP and the Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life party Viktor Medvedchuk are the violence and revenge on the part of the current government. This was stated on air of Pershiy Nezalezhniy TV channel by Yuriy Zagorodny, an MP of Opposition Platform - For Life party.
According to him, on the morning of June 24, employees of the Security Service and the State Bureau of Investigation raided the relatives and assistants of the opposition politician with searches. Law enforcers were unable to show the documents required for this. They were guided by a court order dated from June 16, which allows searches only in the offices of the MP's assistants. However, the security forces illegally entered the parliamentarian's reception.
At the same time, the representative of the SBU forbade the journalists of Pershiy Nezalezhniy to film.
"The law enforcement officers went to the reception room of the MP Medvedchuk supposedly because the offices of his assistants are there. In order to enter the reception room of the MP, a separate court decision is needed," the politician explained.
Zagorodny also confirmed that the security forces are conducting searches at the premises of the mother of Oksana Marchenko. Marchenko is a wife of Chairman of the Political Council of the Opposition Platform - For Life.
"This suggests that the current government ignores the laws of Ukraine and is engages in lawlessness ... This is moral violence and revenge on the part of the authorities for the principled position of Viktor Medvedchuk," the MP emphasized.
