“At the moment, I see no legal or moral grounds to resign, and the law provides for the change of prosecutor only in two cases: when he himself wants to leave or when the parliament wants him to leave,” Lutsenko said.
At the same time, the Prosecutor General added that he was ready for a possible resignation.
“On the other hand, if the parliament expresses distrust to me, I will take it absolutely calmly and I am ready for it. But we have elected a president whom I personally respect and I will help in state affairs. We did not choose the king who can remove and appoint anyone he wants, it happens only in TV series, in life everything should be according to the laws,” Lutsenko emphasized.
As it was reported earlier, Zelensky’s team planned to replace Prosecutor General Lutsenko with one of the anti-corruption activists. Someone among the activists who emerged recently has to hold this post, as ZeTeam thinks. After the second round of the presidential elections, Volodymyr Zelensky stated that Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko has to be replaced with a “new person”.
Within the first 100 days of Zelensky’s presidency, ZeTeam intends to come up with the work of the chairmen of NABU, SAP, State Bureau of Investigation and Prosecutor General Office.
