Leader of Savik Shuster' Defense Lawyers Unit, Managing Partner of the International Legal Center EUCON Yaroslav Romanchuk told Censor.NET.
"As the defense, we appealed against the decision of the Kyiv Employment Center canceling the work permit until the trial yesterday since we believed that it was taken on the (basis of - Ed.) false information submitted by the State Fiscal Service. However, we were simultaneously working with the State Employment Service in order to independently achieve cancellation of unlawful decision taken by the agency subordinate to it," the lawyer emphasized.
"We should give a credit to State Employment Service Acting Chairman Serhii Kravchenko for listening to our arguments and taking the responsibility for the suspension of the decision of the Kyiv Employment Center. He made a commitment to establish all the circumstances which have led to such a decision. As the defense, we are confident in our legal position and we believe that the decree will be canceled in the near future. Savik Shuster can continue working in Ukraine from now," the lawyer added.
Censor.NET has also obtained from him a copy of the decree issued by the State Employment Service suspending the decision to cancel Shuster's permission to work in Ukraine.
