 MPs are obliged to give evidence to the Prosecutor General's Office. It is possible to interrogate them in the Parliament - Hroisman

People's Deputies are obliged to give evidence to the Prosecutor General's Office, and, if necessary, could be questioned in the Parliament.

As Censor.NET informs with reference to Liga, Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Volodymyr Hroisman said when answering the question whether the Speaker himself or the apparatus of the Verkhovna Rada received any letters from PGO investigators with complaints that deputies, including those from the ruling coalition, do not appear to give evidence on Oleksandr Yefremov case.

"Yes, I've received such letters, and the apparatus and myself are telling the deputies that it is important to visit the PGO and give evidence. Or it is possible to do it directly in Ukrainian Parliament during a plenary week. To my mind, it is an obligation of each citizen, as well as of a people's deputy, to comply with the law. And if law enforcement agencies, the Prosecutor's Office in particular, are inviting you, you have to come and give evidence," he said.
