 327 Crimean judges face 10-15 years in jail for treason, - MP Lohvynskyi

Ukrainian MP, Deputy Chairman of Ukraine's permanent delegation to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe Heorhii Lohvynskyi unveiled the results of his inquiry to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine (PGO).

The lawmaker wrote on Facebook, Censor.NET reports.

"327 Crimean judges may get prison terms of 10 to 15 years. According to the PGO's response to my inquiry, that is the exact number of judges officially suspected of committing a crime punished by part 1 of article 111 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, which is high treason!" he wrote.

"We already held a rally outside the Prosecutor General's Office a year ago. We saw some progress after that. And today, I plan to keep my eye on the ball on the daily basis to be sure that no traitor gets away with it.

"According to the Prosecutor General's Office, 259 petitions to launch a special pre-trial investigation were referred to the Pechersk district court [of Kyiv], 114 of which have already been considered and granted. The question is: what has happened to the rest 145 requests????? Why only 259 petitions were referred to the court while 327 judges were under suspicion? What about the rest 68??

"I have been always advocating the proper execution of documentation and its deep study, but is it okay that no indictment against the Crimean judges whose treason is obvious has not reached the court over more than a year????

So, I'll continue asking these questions," Lohvynskyi stressed.
