KIEV, March 30. /TASS/. A Kiev district administrative court has withdrawn from its consideration a case on banning Ukraine’s Communist Party, the press service of the country’s Justice Ministry said on Monday.
"The case on the lawsuit of the Justice Ministry for the Communist Party (on banning activity of political party) scheduled for consideration on March 30, 2015 in the Kiev district administrative court has been withdrawn from consideration," the statement says.
The ministry gave no details on why the hearing into the case had been canceled.
Ukraine’s Justice Minister Pavel Petrenko said last July that the ministry had filed a lawsuit with the court on banning the party. The Kiev district administrative court then suspended the proceedings on the case.
However, Kiev’s court of appeal revoked the court ruling on December 24 and sent the court to the court of the first instance for further consideration.
The head of Ukraine’s registration service, Anna Onischenko, said that some 308 criminal cases had been launched against the Communist Party members.
