On July 9, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine began consideration of the case on the constitutionality of the presidential decree appointing Sytnyk to the position of NABU Director. The proceedings were opened upon the constitutional petition of 51 MPs on the constitutionality of the Presidential Decree of April 16, 2015 on the appointment of Sytnyk as Director of NABU. The petitioners believe that the then President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, by appointing Sytnyk as the Director of NABU, abused his constitutional powers and violated the prohibition on usurpation of state power established by Article 5, Part 4 of the Constitution.
