 Opposition Demands Pshonka to Report on Situation with Tymoshenko: Prosecutor General is Breaking the Law

Batkivschyna faction want to hear a report of Prosecutor General Viktor Pshonka and head of the Penitentiary Service Oleksandr Lisitskov about the situation with the ex-Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko.

This was announced by faction leader Serhii Sas at a meeting of the Conciliation Board.

He stressed that the Prosecutor General has not reported to the Parliament for 5 years, thus breaking the law, while he should do it every year.

"We demand to end the torture of the opposition leader. What is being conducted in her regard has a clear definition - torture," said the deputy.

Sas said that the head of the Prison Service and the Prosecutor General have to report on the first session of the Verkhovna Rada.

The politician also said that the repressions in Ukraine are continuing which is why there is a growing threat of international isolation for Ukraine. According to him, this is why we need to pass a draft statement of the Verkhovna Rada on integration to the European Union. Sas is confident that by the time of the signing of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, our country shall fulfill the European Parliament resolution on the situation in Ukraine, which was adopted last year.
