 Svoboda Wants to Revoke Mandates of 20 Deputies with Dual Citizenship

Leader of the opposition faction told the press about the inquiry to the SSU.

Leader of Svoboda Oleh Tiahnybok informed that MP from his party Miroshnichenko filed an inquiry to the Security Service about dual citizenship of deputies last session, but the answer was not satisfactory, reports Censor.NET.

"This is a gross violation of Ukrainian legislation. Because those people who have one passport in the left pocket, and the other - to the right do not have the right to be deputies . Unfortunately, the answer from the SSU said that the matter is beyond their jurisdiction. Then whose competency is it? According to our information, about 20 deputies are citizens of other countries. This poses a legal liability - depriving the mandates.

According to Tiahnybok, the Parliament will be unlocked only if the law upheld.
