Lawmakers were involved in recent raider attacks?

Ukrainian President Victor Yushchenko says that he will again demand the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine to cancel the deputies` immunity from the prosecution.

According to an UNIAN correspondent, he said this at a meeting with Verkhovna Rada Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn on Thursday.

In particular, the President stressed he would like the parliament to consider more than ten draft bills initiated by him. A draft law aimed at preventing MPs from conducting land-related raider attacks is among them.

The President expressed a concern about the recent raider attacks on land plots, in particular, in the Kyiv Oblast, in which people`s deputies have been involved.

“I hope for your support and the support of parliament. Such people should be expelled from parliament”, Victor Yushchenko emphasized.
