The Servant of the People Party does not see reasons to punish the head of the Committee of Foreign and Inter-Parliamentary Policy and Inter-parliamentary Cooperation Bohdan Yaremenko for the sex scandal in Verkhovna Rada. The first deputy head of the Servant of the People faction Oleksandr Kornienko said this, as Ukrainian News agency reports.
Answering if there would be sanctions for MP Yaremenko, Kornienko said:
“We are not a Committee on Ethics and Moral. It was disbanded.”
Kornienko believes that taking video of correspondence of the MP with the prostitute in the parliament hall is a violation of privacy.
“We have an article in the Criminal Code about violation of privacy, that’s why I would advise parliament’s photojournalists to pay attention to what they are doing. At some point, it could trigger a reaction. The fact that it was done before does not mean it is right,”he added.
As it was reported earlier, MP from Servant of the People party Bohdan Yaremenko was caught in flagranti, as he and a prostitute named Alina apparently discussed the conditions of their rendezvous and the price of sex services.
Yaremenko stated that his intimate correspondence with a prostitute was a "rash act".
