“In order to make clear that there are no doubts and nobody clings to the power, today I file a letter of my resignation to the president of Ukraine.

Lutsenko added that “he cannot allow the dual authority in the country when the law enforcement system is destroyed without evidence even for the solved crimes.”

“As the head of the law enforcement system, I will file an application today. And you should decide: possibly Mustafa Nayyem (the MP from Block of Petro Poroshenko, -  112 international) will lead the investigation and establish the guilty from the TV or the law enforcement bodies, which are criminally liable for this,” he promised.

Yuriy Lutsenko was appointed to the post of the prosecutor general on May 12, 2016. The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported the draft regulation on his appointment by the voices of 264 MPs. The document was signed by President Petro Poroshenko.

Before this, a law on Prosecutor General’s Office was adopted in which the demands for the candidate for the post of the prosecutor general were changed. In accordance with an adopted draft law, a candidate for the position should have a university degree, not necessarily a legal one, work experience in law or legislative and/or law enforcement body (not less than five years), he should speak the state language, possess high moral  and professional qualities and organizational skills. Thus, there is an opinion, that this law was adopted only for the appointment of Yuriy Lutsenko for the post of the prosecutor general.
