In October 2019, the ECHR recognized the law “On the purification of power” (lustration) as not complying with the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and violating the rights of civil servants.

After the court’s decision, the Servant of the People’s Party proposed abolishing the law. At the same time, the head of the Ministry of Justice has already announced Ukraine’s intention to appeal the decision of the ECHR.

As we reported, the provision reducing the number of judges of the Supreme Court to 100 effectively amounts to a second vetting and should be removed as the Venice Commission stated concerning the law on the judicial reform initiated by President Volodymyr Zelensky.
