President Volodymyr Zelensky has submitted to the Verkhovna Rada draft of the Law of Ukraine "On the liquidation of the Kyiv District Administrative Court" as an urgent one", - the website of the head of state reports.
It is noted that in accordance with part two of Article 125 of the Constitution of Ukraine, the court is formed, reorganized and liquidated by law, the draft of which is submitted to the Verkhovna Rada by the President of Ukraine (after consultation with the High Council of Justice).
The message states that respect and trust in the court must be unconditional in a democratic society. But where trust dies, democracy ends. The President's Office believes that the Kyiv District Administrative Court had enough time to "change its mind, look at itself in the mirror and find there the simple things that society and the state are so looking for in it - justice, impartiality and honesty".
"Instead, we see new scandals with "tapes", corruption of related persons with safes filled with money and numerous dubious decisions. Trust in the Kyiv District Administrative Court has been lost", - the message says.
According to Zelensky, this will serve as a signal for other courts.
"This year, I am submitting a bill on liquidation of the District Administrative Court of the City of Kyiv to the parliament. The court, which has not been able to regain confidence, but has managed to return the scandals and strange decisions, far from justice understanding. There are plenty of safes full of millions of cash, owned by people connected with the court leadership or waiting for the next recordings of scandalous conversations from the offices of judges, who think that they prevail in our country. The court, one decision of which can put an end to any achievement of the state, any reform, will be liquidated. Take this as a signal to any court that has betrayed respect for the law", - the president noted.
