The Verkhovna Rada is going to create an Inquiry Commission to investigate the State Security Service (SBU) activity and scheduled its Chair Ihor Drizhchanyi’s report hearing on Wednesday, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.

      On November 8 the Parliament Committee in charge of security will convene a session with participation of Drizhchanyi.

      The lawmakers consider that SBU reformation is non-transparent and suspect its chief of illegal activity.

      As was earlier reported the former SBU Colonel Valentyn Kryzhanovskiy a year ago as well as Ukrayina Moloda periodical this year issued a row of accusations against Drizhchanyi, the most serious of which was illegal trade in forfeits.

      Yet the criminal case launched by the Prosecutor General’s Office was suspended as Kryzhanovskiy himself is wanted and is rumored to emigrate to Russia.

      The SBU chair claims that the Parliament would better create the Inquiry Commission after the court’s verdict on the forfeits case otherwise it looks like pressure on the court and inquest.

      Yuliya Tymoshenko Bloc MP Andriy Portnov who is likely to chair the Inquiry Commission, says that he as well as initiators of such investigation does not trust the Prosecutor General’s Office.

      According to Delo periodical, it’s BYuT MPs Olexandr Turchynov and Andriy Kozhamyakin who stirred up trouble against SBU chief.
