"Today, the Security Service of Ukraine initiates check up of decisions made by the head of Kyiv Appeal Court, which decisions were subject of earlier published text messaging between the judge and his relative," Hitlianska said.
As reported earlier, on June 24 Kyiv Appeal Court Head Anton Chernushenko was notified by Prosecutor's Office of criminal charges he was facing. Prosecutor General Shokin addressed the Rada to allow arrest and detainment of the judge.
