KIEV, March 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Members of parliament from Ukraine’s ruling Party of Regions are for ending deputies’ immunity, Alexander Yefremov, the leader of the parliamentary faction of the Party of Regions, told a briefing on Monday.
“The faction is for putting an end to parliamentary immunity, and we will vote for that,” Yefremov said, adding that members of parliament from the opposition are against dispensing with deputies’ immunity.
“There are many complaints about what happens in our judicial system, and unless deputies put themselves in the same position as citizens, this state of things will go on. There will be one kind of justice for some and a different kind for others. For lawmakers to realize what should be changed in the state and what norms should operate, they must be in the same position as other citizens. This is our stand of principle and we will uphold it,” Yefremov said.
Ukrainian MPs are stripped of some privileges from this year.
