"While on vacation and having the opportunity to personally experience the political pressure that was put on the Prosecutor General's Office, I have decided to get back from vacation today and tendered my resignation to the Prosecutor General. My 30-years experience gives me the opportunity and legal right to comprehensively defend myself according to the law, and I decided to do it. My hands will be completely free to vindicate my character and the one of my family in court being not the Deputy Prosecutor General," Huzyr said.
