"This is a photo of the judgees who are now taking the decision on the 'lustration' law who are themselves being investigated under the law," said one of the protesters, Maksym Trynyeev, Ukraine Today reported.

The majority of Ukraine's judges are subject to the anti-corruption law, according to Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk. They are, reportedly, the same judges who help Ukraine's ousted former president Viktor Yanukovych come to power in 2010 in an election which many said was rigged.

None of the judges have shown any interest in stepping down voluntarily. Meanwhile, some 47 MPs, many closely aligned with the ousted president Yanukovych, claim the law anti-constitutional and is a form of discrimination.
