KIEV, January 16 /TASS/. The Ukrainian parliament will consider a president-proposed bill depriving deputies and judges of immunity after the Constitutional Court of Ukraine decides whether it complies with the country’s constitution.
Deputies from various political forces who spoke in parliament on Friday demanded that the president be also stripped of his immunity.
Poroshenko suggests excluding from article 80 of Ukraine’s Constitution parts that guarantee deputy immunity and a provision that that judges cannot be detained or arrested without the consent of the High Justice Council before an indictment sentence is passed by court except for cases when a judge is detained in the process of committing or shortly after committing a grave or particularly grave crime against a human life.
The bill is to be sent to the Constitutional Court to that will verify whether it complies with the Constitution. Parliament has no right to consider a bill on constitutional amendments before the Constitutional Court of Ukraine concludes that it complies with articles 157 and 158 of the Constitution.
Parliament is to adopt the bill during its next session by 300 votes at least after the Constitutional Court passes its verdict.
