Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine ignores the court decision on the investigation of public officials’ actions from the Ministry of Internal Affairs

The Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) has ignored the decision of Kiev Pechersk district court, which requires registering court procedure and starting a pre-trial investigation regarding the actions of the adviser to the Minister of Internal Affairs A. Gerashchenko and the police press secretary of Kiev region N. Zhukovich.

It has been reported by Marina Parinova – Vyacheslav’s Himikus lawyer, victim affected by shots of the MP Sergey Pashynskiy, as « Law and Business informs ».

“Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine has ignored the decision of Kiev Pechersk district court dd January 16, 2017. To remind, the court has obliged the PGO to record the information into the Unified State Register of Court Decisions taken from V. Himikus statement on committing a crime by the officials from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Police, namely, A. Gerashchenko and N.Zhukovich on the grounds of Art. 343 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. Non-compliance of the court decisions by the PGO indicates that the Government covers the MP-shooter and his associates, and also uses a selective approach on the issue of criminal responsibility”, a lawyer wrote in Facebook.

Earlier, the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine has refused Vyacheslav Himikus, victim affected by shots of the MP Sergey Pashynskiy, in the status of the victim.

It is to remind that on December 31, 2016 the MP’s car almost crashed into a bus that was allegedly staying without parking lights on the road near Vasilkov, Kyiv region. The MP made a comment and then verbal battle began, afterwards Pashynskiy wounded in the foot a 38-year-old V. Himikus with “Glock-19” pistol, who hit him in the head with a bottle. In addition, at the scene except Pashinskiy and Himikus there were MP’s wife and the bus driver.

Each party to the conflict has its own version of what has happened, but the prosecutor’s office is investigating only hooliganism committed against the MP and his wife by a group of persons (criminal proceedings under p.2, Art. 296 of the Criminal Code was opened on the basis of S. Pashinskiy’s statement on the day of the incident). Moreover, it was stated in the Ministry of Internal Affairs that the MP was innocent even before the investigation.

V. Himikus also filed a petition on the fact of using firearms. However, this information was not recorded in the Unified Register of Pre-Trial Investigations.
