Constitutional Court withdraws lustration law from its agenda – source
The Constitutional Court of Ukraine has decided not to consider the constitutionality of the lustration law.
"Today, the judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine have withdrawn the issue on the constitutionality of the lustration law from the agenda," a source in the Constitutional Court told UNIAN.
He also added it was not yet known when the judges might return to the consideration of this issue.
As UNIAN reported earlier, the Law on Lustration came into force on October 16, 2014.
It applies to a person who was serving for at least one year as a top official from February 25, 2010, to February 22, 2014, and those government officials who held the position from November 21, 2013, to February 22, 2014, and have not resigned from their posts. These people will not be able to work in government agencies in the next 10 years.
The Constitutional Court considered the case on the constitutionality of a number of provisions on the lustration law according to the motions of the Supreme Court of Ukraine and 47 lawmakers. Two motions of the Supreme Court and one motion of 47 lawmakers were combined into one constitutional procedure.
On March 22, 2016, the Constitutional Court moved to the consideration of the case behind closed doors.
