The people's Deputy of the European Parliament Rebecca harms said that the passiveness of the Ukrainian authorities in the investigation of crimes committed on the Maidan and may have a negative impact on the relations of Brussels with Kiev.
Harms has called "scandalous" the slowness and indecision of the General Prosecutor's office of Ukraine (PGO) to ascertain those responsible for the death of at least 100 people in protests on Independence square in Kiev in the autumn and winter of 2013-2014." the story is about the dignity of the victims, their friends and relatives, " said harms, Deutsche Welle reports.
in her vision, the Chief Prosecutor's office of Ukraine and its head, completely squandered credibility." We in the European Union in recent months can not abandon the impression that the idea of the Euromaidan, the idea of combating illegal activities of officials, which according to the calculations put at the forefront the government, the Parliament and the head of Ukraine is not implemented as consistently As would the overwhelming number of Residents of Ukraine and people's deputies of the European Parliament, " said harms. As shown by the case of the Euromaidan and the proceedings of the tragedy in Odessa, the changes in personnel of the Prosecutor's office and courts in Ukraine are inevitable. Such lawlessness must be investigated and perpetrators brought to justice, otherwise it will remain a barrier to reconciliation in the society, she said." If not followed by long-overdue reforms and personnel changes throughout the court system of Ukraine, it will form a stain not on all of Ukraine, and on the reputation of leading politicians - the head of the Ministry of internal Affairs, the head of the government and the President himself, who is the current Prosecutor General of Ukraine have long-standing relations ", - said harms.
