Parliamentary immunity has to remain, - the political scientist


If stars are lit, so it is necessary for someone and if politicians begin to shout loudly of need of removal of parliamentary immunity from themselves, darlings, it can mean only one: elections not far off.

Here and now - in spite of the fact that the election campaign did not start de jure yet, in political halls and a lobby even more often speak about elimination of deputy immunity supposedly it is necessary that all citizens were equal before the law. This subject is exaggerated in parliament not one year in a row, however to put the fat end in the "untouchable" epic all will be too busy at owners of mandates in any way.

Nevertheless, parliamentarians, without wishing to cancel inviolability "wholesale", willingly vote for removal of protective immunity from separately taken colleagues. The other day the committee of BP concerning regulations recognized as lawful representation on removal of parliamentary immunity from two deputies from Oppositional Block fraction - Dmitry Kolesnikov and Alexander Vilkul.

Directly during the meeting of special-purpose committee the Prosecutor General Yury Lutsenko noted that Dmitry Kolesnikov is suspected of abuse of power.

Their market value at that time was about 17 million hryvnias, Lutsenko noted. According to him, the People's Deputy from Opoblok acted illegally for the benefit of the third parties who, having got these rooms, sold out machines which were strategically important and have to be used for defensive industrial production.

: no crime was committed as alienation of state property took place only after adoption of the relevant decision of the City Council.

Dmitry Kolesnikov appended the signature under the relevant decision after giving of a full package of documents of the management of institute which insisted on its unprofitability and for this reason planned to lease these rooms thus to satisfy debts to tax administration and the Pension fund, lawyers of opoblokovets assure.

Directly Kolesnikov says that business is quite transparent, and, thus, the power tries to put pressure upon "politically active people and the opponents".

during the same meeting the procedural Committee also made the decision on removal of parliamentary immunity from the cochairman of OB fraction Alexander Vilkul who, according to the Prosecutor General, Lutsenko, at the time of the management of the Dnipropetrovsk Regional State Administration allegedly illegally leased several land plots and the earth of agricultural roads. Thus, according to investigators of GPU, Vilk
