HCPJ Member Hrechkivskyi Scolds Investigation For Attempt To Make Sensation Out Of Routine Procedural Action

HCPJ Member Hrechkivskyi Scolds Investigation For Attempt To Make Sensation Out Of Routine Procedural Action

Pavlo Hrechkivskyi, a member of the High Council of Public Justice, scolds the investigation for an attempt to make a sensation out of a routine procedural action of handing charges to him.

He said this in an interview with Ukrainian News Agency.

"Why are they doing this? Was it a problem for detectives to call and invite me for giving the charges? I would have come to take the charges from the detective. I have never refused to come to the prosecutor's office. But one cannot make a show in a small boring room of the detective. They needed to make a sensation out of a routine procedural action to increase the value of the incorrect information for media and dump negative information ahead of the voting for judges of the Supreme Court," he said.

He believes efforts are taken to get him and other members of the High Council of Public Justice to recuse selves during the vote for the judges of the Supreme Court and that will lead to absence of quorum. Then the High Council of Public Justice will be to blame for the failure to appoint judges of the Supreme Court.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Hrechkivskyi predicts provocations against members of the High Council of Public Justice during the process of appointment of judges of the new Supreme Court.

On August 8, the Prosecutor General's Office completed a pretrial investigation against member of the High Council of Public Justice Hrechkivskyi and pressed charges on him.
