розенко rozenko

Minister of Social Policy Pavlo Rozenko is not going to reinstate ousted State Employment Service Head Yaroslav Kashuba, suspected of bribe-taking.

He stated this on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.

"I have not canceled the order and I should obviously expect that the lawyer takes legal action to cancel my order. Therefore we will contest it in the courts," Rozenko said.

It was reported earlier that the Pechersk district court in Kyiv ruled that Yaroslav Kashuba, suspected of bribe-taking, must be reinstated as head of the State Employment Service of Ukraine. According to Pavlo Rozenko, the case into bribe-taking was never heard.

The minister assured that he was not going to reinstate the official and intended to continue litigation with Kashuba.

It should be reminded that the officers of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) in conjunction with the members of the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) detained Chairman of the State Employment Service of Ukraine receiving a bribe in Sept. 2015. The SBU reported that the person was detained in his official car in Kyiv downtown, when he was receiving a bribe in the amount of 622,000 hryvnia (about $28,500).

Subsequently, the media reported that Kashuba was released on bail.
