This was stated by Chairman of the Batkivschyna faction Yatsenyuk after the panel of judges announced the decision, reports the party's press service.
He noted that at the trial it was proved that there were no grounds for revoking the mandate of deputy Serhii Vlasenko. "When this so-called judge read the decision, he did not even know what it said, because it's a decision of the Presidential Administration. He did not know even know that the ECHR stands for the European Court of Human Rights. Therefore it is clear that it is not the judge who wrote that decision. And it is clear that there are no fair courts, justice, or law in Ukraine. This decision was made on the direct orders of Viktor Yanukovych," said Yatsenyuk.
"Fear of Yanukovych and lack of conscience is not a legal matter. Legally, we won. This is clearly a politically motivated case. There is a customer of the case - President Yanukovych, there is an organizer - Presidential Administration, and there are executors - five men in judges' robes," he stressed. Yatsenyuk noted that the purpose of this decision is not just to deprive Serhii Vlasenko of deputy mandate. "The purpose of this decision is the destruction of the system of the Ukrainian opposition. The head of this special operation is the President himself."
"He (Yanukovych) is not planning any trip to Europe. He is not going - no one will let him. He is not telling the truth. He goes there, promises something, says - and does everything the on the contrary in this country. He captured all the power and thinks that he will continue to live this way with impunity - ruling and humiliating. He believes that he is a tsar in this country. And we believe that in this country, according to the Constitution, the right to rule lies only with the people of Ukraine. And we, as the opposition will fight so that the Ukrainian people will regain their right to rule the country," said chairman of Batkivschyna faction."
He noted that the authorities are making fun of millions of Ukrainians, "They cannot defend themselves, if they do not an "envelope" (with money), if they do not have a direct line to a government official." Yatsenyuk noted that the case to the European Court of Human Rights concerning the decision of the HACU, which the opposition will prepare tonight, will be considered as soon as possible, and he expressed confidence that the European Court of Human Rights will overturn the decision of HACU.
