Ukraine’s Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko stated that President Poroshenko was ready to give additional testimony in the investigation of Maidan crimes.  Yet, the investigator has to agree on the time of the questioning, as he has said in a commentary for the journalists, 112 Ukraine reported.

“The president obeys the law, so he is ready to give testimony as a witness again. Obviously, despite the status of the Head of the State, the investigator has to agree on the time of the questioning. But I know for sure that the President is ready to provide all information he has so that Horbatyuk (Head of the Special Investigation Department of Prosecutor General Office, - ed.) could give a final result on the fifth year of the investigation,” Lutsenko said.

“Horbatyuk should work on himself because Prosecutor General is not a person who can get the signature of the witness. I know for sure that two investigators were in the President’s Administration about a year ago and questioned the President. Why did not they get the signature, Horbatyuk should ask his subordinates,” Prosecutor General added.
