On November 2, the official website of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine stopped working. In all likelihood, it was a hacker attack. This was announced by the press secretary of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine Mariana Hayovska, Ukrainian News Agency reports.
"Our website was hacked," Hayovska said.
Now the website of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine is working again.
As we reported earlier, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine recognized the norm about the criminal responsibility for false declaration unconstitutional. According to the court’s decision, the criminal responsibility for a false declaration is ‘excessive punishment’ for a person. The punishment for false declaration is ‘disproportional to the inflicted harm’.
By such a decision, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine blocked the implementation of local election results. The court denied the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption access to state registers which are used to verify declarations of candidates for senior positions in state bodies. In this regard, no head can be officially appointed.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated that the system of the electronic declaration of incomes will work despite the decision of the Constitutional Court.
Later, president 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 a declaration that the Court had canceled.
In his turn, Chair of the Constitutional Court Oleksandr Tupytsky stated that the bill initiated by President Volodymyr Zelensky has characteristics of the constitutional coup in Ukraine.
