Klymenko promised to bring investigators of GPU to justice
Oleksandr Klymenko stated that General Prosecutor deprived him of his right to legal assistance. He also paid attention to the existence of grounds for considering investigators are subjects to liability.
The leader of the “Uspіshna Kraina” party reported about violation of his right to legal assistance, which is guaranteed by the Constitution. It follows from the official statement of politician, which was published on his official Facebook page.
According to Klymenko, investigators of the second investigative management department breached legally established procedures and did not allow his lawyers (Tatiana Zhukovsky, Elena Klymenko, Sergey Titarenko) to represent interests of politician in the courts of Ukraine and other law enforcement agencies.
Oleksandr Klymenko noted that the lawyers have been successfully defending his interests during last two years, including in the European courts. Moreover, they did not make any legal mistakes. There is an interesting fact that these lawyers have pointed to negligence, incompetence and political component in activities of GPU.
The politician suggested that the next step would be compulsory appointment of the state lawyer, who would become an obedient figure for GPU. In addition, this lawyer will be able to turn a blind eye to the violation of the law.
That is why, the leader of “Uspіshna Kraina” party decided to appeal to the representatives of the justice: “Dear investigators and prosecutors! I do not need a government lawyer. You should not spend budget money. I have my own lawyers, they will represent my interests in future. In addition, I would like to mention that you have committed and still proceed to commit criminal offenses. Thus, I have grounds for relevant application concerning bringing you to justice”.
Klymenko believes that such actions of GPU are evidence of complete legal disorder in Ukraine, ignoring and disrespect for the rule of law.
You discredit the country and its leaders. In fact, you demonstrate permissiveness in relation to any person in Ukraine! The law is either respected by all or no one! I advocate for all! You advocate against everyone! Against the Ukrainian people! Against the rule of law and for violation of the oath! You can be absolutely sure: I will not allow depreciation of the letter of the law in Ukraine! I will not let you to act in the same manner in respect to other people, who can not defend themselves! Justice will prevail! Law breakers will be punished! “- politician summed up.
Let us remind, Oleksandr Klymenko has already won trials against Valentin Nalyvaychenko, the former head of the SSU, and Ihor Bilous, the former head of the State Fiscal Service. Court declared that all charges and accusations against the ex-minister are groundless. During the interview with «Independent» in December 2015, Klymenko called the charges against him as political pursuit.
