Petro Poroshenko Bloc faction has voted overwhelmingly in favor of lifting immunity of its member, MP Boryslav Rozenblat, the party office said. The party also excluded Rozenblat from its parliamentary faction and agreed for his indictment.
It is reported that Rozenblat personally asked the faction to lift his immunity. He said he is ready to hold responsibility for his deeds and defend himself in court, as well as give away his foreign passports.
The PPB faction also supported lifting immunity of all six MPs that were considered by regulation committee last week upon the motions by the Prosecutor General's Office.
On July 3, the regulation committee of the Rada considered a motion by Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko on giving consent to prosecute People's Deputy Yevhen Deidei, People's Front.
The committee ruled that the PGO's motion was "not enough substantiated and motivated, and does not contain concrete facts."
On July 4, the committee considered a motion to prosecute People's Deputy Oles Dovhyi, independent. The MPs ruled to send the motion for consideration of the Rada speaker.
On July 5, the committee considered a motion to prosecute MP Andrii Lozovyi. It ruled that the motion was ill founded and should be sent for consideration of the Rada speaker.
On July 6, the committee considered a motion to prosecute MP Maksym Poliakov. The MPs ruled that the motion was ill founded.
On June 19, NABU detectives detained a bodyguard of Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) MP Boryslav Rozenblat. The bodyguard was carrying a bag with $200,000 in cash. The MP called it a 'provocation.' NABU head Sytnyk announced later that his agency drafted a motion on lifting immunity of people's deputies Boryslav Rozenblat and Maksym Poliakov.
On June 22, Solomianskyi court has ruled to arrest another suspect in the so-called 'amber case,' Kostiantyn Proskurko, for 60 days.
