Absence of the decision from the District Administrative Court of Kyiv on the ban of the Communist Party is evidence that the judicial system is unable to make independent decisions and continuation of the practice of "agreements."
This opinion was announced by the leader of the civil organization “Solidarity of Right Forces” and candidate for deputy Andrey Artemenko during a meeting with representatives of the OSCE.
“Courts are still the places of unlimited corruption and disorder. The case with the KPU when the District Court of Kyiv once again postponed the preliminary hearing on the ban of the Communist Party of Ukraine – is a real insolence. The party that during the years of Ukraine’s independence have parasitised on voters, sold itself in parliament, openly betraying the interests of Ukraine – has no right to exist, “- said the politician.
The situation with the decision of the District Court, according to A. Artemenko brings up a lot of questions.
“I think we need to understand why the KPU is going to the elections, why it has not been banned but allowed to campaign. It is clear that communists through “agreements” are trying to cover up this deal, but also I would like to address relevant questions to the court and the Ministry of Justice. Why the case on the ban is dragging for months when the first hearing of the District Administrative Court in proceeding against the KPU was on July 24? “- he said.
As you know on October 22 the District Administrative Court of Kyiv postponed the preliminary hearing concerning the ban of the Communist Party of Ukraine. This decision was taken by the court because of the absence of KPU representatives. The date of the next hearing is not specified.
The Ministry of Justice asks Kyiv District Administrative Court to ban any activities of the KPU.
