Ukraine’s top prosecutor initiates SAP head Kholodnytskyi’s dismissal

Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yurii Lutsenko filed a motion on dismissal of Specialized Anti-corruption Prosecutor's Office (SAP) Chief Nazar Kholodnytskyi.

Lutsenko wrote on social media, Censor.NET reports. 

"Disciplinary complaints were filed to the Higher qualifications and disciplinary bar commission as part of the criminal case into offenses found during the probe which is carried out by a joint team of investigators of the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) and National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU).

"These motions concerning disciplinary offenses committed by SAP Chief Nazar Kholodnytskyi were signed by the prosecutor general and NABU director.

"In my motion, I request the Higher qualifications and disciplinary bar commission to consider Kholodnytskyi’s removal from the post of deputy prosecutor general, head of the SAP," Lutsenko said.

Several news agencies earlier reported that Kholodnytskyi considered his resignation over alleged health issues. According to another opinion, possible resignation of SAP’s chief can be connected to the pressure exerted on him. Kholodnytskyi later said he had no intent to resign.
