The old Supreme Court of Ukraine did not make a decision on the stop on its activity and liquidation on December 21 due to the absence of the quorum. Vasyl Humenyuk, the acting Head of the Supreme Court of Ukraine claimed this as UNN reported.
‘Today we planned to hold the Plenum on stop of the activity and liquidation of the Supreme Court of Ukraine in accordance with the procedure established by law. But it happened so that any of the colleagues came. We do not have a quorum. If there is no quorum then we cannot begin the session of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of Ukraine. This session will be held a little bit later when we find a quorum’, Humenyuk said.
According to him, the reason why the judges did not come for is unknown.
At the same time, he did not specify when the next session of the Plenum of the Supreme Court will take place. But Humenyuk thinks that it will not take place in 2017.
‘I do not think that we will be able to gather the quorum until the New Year’.
Today only 9 judges of the Supreme Court were present but there should be at least 10 judges to hold the plenum.
As we reported the new Supreme Court began its work on December 15.
