The State Investigation Bureau (SIB) has opened the criminal case due to the possible abuses of ex-head of the Constitutional Court Stanislav Shevchuk, as Ukrainian News reported citing SIB representative.
The case is opened due to the abuse of authority or power. The investigation has begun due to the appeal of the Ukrainian Parliament’s MP on the possible illicit appointment of the non-staff advisers by Shevchuk and it led to the unnecessary budget expenses.
On May 14, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine dismissed Stanislav Shevchuk from the office of the Head of this authority. 12 judges, the necessary minimum to pass, voted for such decision after the Court expressed a motion of no confidence. The colleagues blamed him for making the court's work too political, the source said.
On May 21, Shevchuk appealed the decision of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine on his dismissal.
