The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko said that the President Vladimir Zelensky has no right to demand the Parliament to remove him from his post. He said this edition of “theBabel”.
According to him, to make a submission on dismissal of the Prosecutor General can only be a special Commission of prosecutors: “the President has no right to make a submission to my dismissal. To fire me, you want my statement or distrust of the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada”.
The day before, June 11, the Vladimir Zelensky said that the appointment of Lutsenko to the post of attorney General has violated the Constitution. The incumbent attorney General does not correspond to his post, because it does not have a legal education and legal experience, said the President. For this reason he has made to the Verkhovna Rada representation for dismissal of Lutsenko from the post of attorney General.
Yuriy Lutsenko graduated from the Lviv Polytechnic Institute majoring in “electronic engineering technology”. During the reign of President Petro Poroshenko, he was appointed to the post of Prosecutor General of Ukraine. Before that, the Verkhovna Rada amended the law allowing for appointment of persons without legal training and experience. May 20, 2019 during the inaugural speech, President Vladimir Zelensky urged Lutsenko to resign.
According to the Ukrainian law “On prosecution”, the basis for the dismissal of attorney General is a letter of resignation at own will, performance qualification and disciplinary Commission of public prosecutors, as well as the arrears of alimony. In addition, the Parliament can vote non-confidence in the Prosecutor General, which will also lead to his dismissal from office.
