Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine

The Qualifications and Disciplinary Commission of Public Prosecutors decided not to dismiss Nazar Kholodnytsky, the Head of the Head of Ukraine's Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAPO), after considering the case on his dismissal, as Hromadske reports.

The reporter – Artem Sytnyk, the Head of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) – after the hearing of the charges and testimony stated that Kholodnytsky violated the law and he had to be fired for the violations.

In its turn, the Qualifications and Disciplinary Commission of Public Prosecutors admits that Kholodnytsky is guilty and he deserves the admonition but he can not be fired in accordance with the legislation.

NABU’s Head informed Ukrainian News that he intended to appeal against Kholodnytsky’s admonition.

“Yes, we will file a complaint,” he said.

 At the same time, Sytnyk did not specify when exactly.

As we reported the SAP found a wire in the cabinet of Nazar Kholodnytsky. It was noted that the NABU and Prosecutor General's Office held the audition. It was noted that the NABU and GPU tapped the SAPO Head.

On March 22, Kholodnytsky confirmed that the wire was found in his cabinet. He noted that he does not know who is an owner of the device found on March 6 and waits for the response from the law enforcement bodies.

Yuriy Lutsenko, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine initiated Kholodnytsky’s resignation on March 30. Lutsenko appealed to the Qualifications and Disciplinary Commission of Public Prosecutors concerning Nazar Kholodnytsky, his Deputy and the Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor’s Office.

Also, Kholodnytsky claimed that the Prosecutor General’s Office opened the criminal proceeding against him due to the disclosing of the details of the pretrial investigation, particularly, the Suprun case.
