Chairman of the High Administrative Court Oleksandr Nechytailo told journalists, Censor.NET reports referring to Ukrainski Novyny.
He noted that the law on ensuring the right for fair trial caused a legal conflict - it provides for a three-year term of bringing to disciplinary responsibility, while its transitional provisions stipulate a one-year term. The High Administrative Court ruled that in case with judges, a one-year term of bringing to disciplinary responsibility should be applied.
The High Administrative Court has already overturned three rulings of the Supreme Council of Justice regarding approval for dismissal of judges over the violation of oath by trying Maidan activists.
In particular, it reversed the dismissal of judge of the Chornobai district court of the Cherkasy region Nelli Tsybra, judge of the Boryspil city district court of the Kyiv region Anatolii Levchenko, judge of the Obolon district court of Kyiv Vitalii Litvinov.
"This blunder (in the law) just stands in our way," Nechytailo said.
He said he understood the negative public outcry caused by such decisions of the High Administrative Court, but stressed that the final verdict in the case would be delivered by the Supreme Court.
