Lutsenko said it at a joint briefing with NABU chief Artem Sytnyk, Censor.NET reports.
"After a lengthy talk, we have reached the following position. The recent events between the two law enforcement agencies are inadmissible. We will do our best to avoid them in the future.
"As a prosecutor general, I believe there are signs of violations by all sides of the conflict. Both me and my colleagues see the social turmoil caused by this situation. I would like to urge all of you not to divide into those who support the NABU and those who stand by the PGO. The society should be concerned about the legality of the actions of all law enforcement agencies and their effectiveness in fighting crime and corruption wherever they may occur, even in our offices," Lutsenko said.
As previously reported, representatives of a PGO department apprehended two NABU operatives Aug. 12 and unlawfully detained them for 11 hours without drawing up a record of arrest. The operatives were carrying out surveillance on prosecutors initiated as part of several criminal proceedings from a safe house near the above PGO department. The detained NABU employees claim the use of physical and moral coercion against them.
In turn, PGO's Major Fraud Investigations Department Head Volodymyr Hutsuliak reported the beating of three PGO employees by NABU special forces Aug. 12.
Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko urges the society to avoid splitting into "those who support the NABU and those who stand by the PGO."
