March­ing for a bet­ter Supreme Court of Ukraine

Kyiv Post - - National -

Ac­tivists dressed as mon­ster judges walk from the Pres­i­den­tial Ad­min­is­tra­tion to the Supreme Court of Ukraine dur­ing their rally on Sept. 13. Some 30 ac­tivists ral­lied in Kyiv wear­ing ju­di­cial robes and masks, de­mand­ing that un­qual­i­fied or com­pro­mised can­di­dates don’t get se­lected to the new court. Ukraine’s High Coun­cil of Jus­tice started re­view­ing can­di­dates on Sept. 14 and, sub­ject to Poroshenko’s ap­proval, will ap­point 120 judges. Ac­cord­ing to the ac­tivists, 30 of the can­di­dates nom­i­nated by the High Qual­i­fi­ca­tion Com­mis­sion of Judges of Ukraine have re­ceived neg­a­tive as­sess­ments from thein­de­pen­dent Pub­lic In­tegrity Coun­cil.
