Arseniy Yatsenyuk urges to dismiss about half of SFS central apparatus under lustration law
OREANDA-NEWS. October 23, 2015. As the result of the inspections conducted by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk calls on the Head of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine to immediately implement the law on lustration, and thus dismiss 42% of the SFS’s central apparatus as well as 15% of the apparatus of the regional branches. The Head of Government said this at a governmental meeting on Wednesday, 21 October.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk reminded that two weeks ago he ordered the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and special lustration department to check the State Fiscal Service in terms of implementation of the lustration law.
He informed that the Justice Ministry had examined 344 personal files of the State Fiscal Service’s senior management - the central office as well as all the service’s regional branches, including heads and deputy heads, and relevant heads of customs.
"As the result of the checks carried out by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, 42% of the senior management of the SFS’s central apparatus fall under immediate dismissal. 15% of the senior management of the service's regional branches are also subject to immediate dismissal," emphasised the Prime Minister.
"Following inspections I urge the Head of the State Fiscal Service to immediately fulfill the lustration law and dismiss 42% of the central apparatus of the State Fiscal Service, as well as 15% of the apparatus of regional branches of the SFS under the law," he stressed.
Arseniy Yatsenyuk pointed out that this was the first step towards the formation of a new State Fiscal Service "on the same principle as we are forming the National police and offer to form new Ukrainian courts."
