The supreme council of justice is offered to accept idea of Vasily Onopenko's dismissal from a position of the judge and the head of the Supreme Court of Ukraine.
About it it is spoken in the proposal of the member of the Supreme council of justice, the Deputy Prosecutor General Renat Kuzmin.
It is offered to dismiss Onopenko for violation of the oath of the judge by him that according to the legislation involves the termination of powers at an administrative position.
Kuzmin reminded that on May 16, 2007 KS recognized unconstitutional the provision of the law on judicial system of Ukraine according to which the head of court and its deputy are appointed and leave the president. Then to the Verkhovna Rada recommended to settle this question.
"Using that the question of appointment of judges to administrative positions and dismissal from these positions legislatively isn't settled, the head of the Supreme Court Onopenko through Judicial council illegally appropriated the specified powers", - Kuzmin declares.
On May 31, 2007 the Judicial council made the decision with which determined itself by the only authoized subject of implementation of functions to destination judges.
Being guided by this decision, the Judicial council of Ukraine illegally appointed, and the head of VSU Onopenko illegally brought candidates to administrative positions of heads of courts and their deputies on an extent more than 2,5 years, Kuzmin emphasizes.
According to him, on December 22 KS made the decision with which actually at official level I confirmed illegality of an order of appointment of judges to the administrative positions, the Judicial council approved by the decision.
"However, after adoption of the above solution of KS the head of the Supreme Court Onopenko continued illegal intervention in process of appointment of judges", - Kuzmin emphasized.
"Onopenko's above acts not only aren't compatible to a position of the head of the Supreme Court, but also discredit a rank of the judge and can raise doubts in his objectivity, impartiality, independence", - he adds.
