The Prosecutor General’s office has materials on the submission of the withdrawal of parliamentary immunity from more than 20 MPs who receive compensation for renting a house despite they have their own place in 30 km from Kyiv. Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko said this after the session of the procedural committee, as 112.ua broadcasted.
‘As far as I know, both GPU (Prosecutor General’s office, - 112.international) and Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) have materials, which we will have hard times with. There are more than 20 people’s deputies who receive compensation for housing, yet having accommodation in Kyiv in 30 km zone. As far as I remember from my deputy life, MPs aren’t the poorest,’ Yuriy Lutsenko noted.
He added that he did not know the way the procedural committee would make a decision towards these people’s deputies, considering the need to refrain from interests in the event of a conflict when it comes to party members.
According to the report of the Ukrainian Parliament for 2018, the deputies are paid up to USD 725 monthly for apartment renting.
