The Supreme Court of Ukraine refused to open the criminal proceeding on the lawsuit against appointment of Andry Bohdan as the Head of the Presidential Administration as the court reported.
The court refused to consider the lawsuit filed by social organization Public Lustration Committee as the law demands the offence reported by a claimant to be grounded.
“The Supreme Court rejected the claimant's appeal, grounding it be the fact the right for the appeal of the individual act of the subject of power is provided to a person against whom this act is adopted or rights, freedoms and interests of whom it does not concern. As the claimant is the partaker of the legal relations on the appointment of Bohdan as Head of the Administration of the President of Ukraine, such order does not urge the claimant to use the right for the defense, in other words, the right to file the lawsuit,” the court said.
The Supreme Court of Ukraine received the claim to cancel Zelensky’s order, by which Andriy Bohdan was appointed as the Head of the Presidential Administration.
Earlier, the new head of Presidential Administration of Ukraine is Andriy Bohdan. The respective decree has been released by the president's press office via the official website.
The document was signed May 21.
Andriy Bohdan previously served as Volodymyr Zelensky's counselor for legal issues; he also used to be the lawyer of Ihor Kolomoysky, the Ukrainian oligarch famous for his business ties to Zelensky.
