"[If] someone has a desire to make me file resignation, we shall demonstrate and prove our position. If we have made mistakes doing our job, we will correct them. But I think it is the disciplinary commission that must decide whether this alleged wrongdoing is severe enough for resignation. The point is that I'm not hiding, I'm afraid of no one," he said.
Kholodnytskyi said he did not read the motion on his alleged disciplinary offense the prosecutors had filed to the Higher qualifications and disciplinary bar commission.
"I am ready to read it and answer all the Commission’s questions," he added.
On March 30, Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko filed a motion on Kholodnytskyi's dismissal.
Several news agencies earlier reported that Kholodnytskyi considered his resignation over alleged health issues. According to another opinion, possible resignation of SAP’s chief can be connected to the pressure exerted on him. Kholodnytskyi later said he had no intent to resign.
