Earlier, in September of 2015, the Verkhovna Rada voted for prosecution, detention and arrest of Igor Mosiychuk. He was accused of bribery, hooliganism, threats and violence against an official, interference in the activity of the judiciary, threats and violence against the judge. The court arrested Mosiychuk for two months without a right for a bail on September 18, 2015. The deputy announced a hunger strike as a protest. On November 17, Ukraine’s Supreme Administrative Court found the decision of the Verkhovna Rada on lifting the immunity and arrest of Mosiychuk illegal. The Supreme Court of Ukraine confirmed this.
