Ex-prosecutor Kasko says PGO eager to "lock him up"
Former Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Vitaliy Kasko claims that the Prosecutor General's Office (PGO) is set to submit to Kyiv Pechersk District Court a motion for his arrest as a preventive measure, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
The Prosecutor General's Office continues to adhere to the illicit position that he is a suspect in a criminal case, Kasko told journalists after his interrogation in the PGO.
"The only purpose of today's call, which was also carried out in violation of the law, was the serving of the actual petition for arrest. That means that the PGO really wants to lock me up. This petition will be submitted to Kyiv Pechersk Court today. We are preparing defense against this motion," Kasko said.
