Kyiv: The Supreme Court of Ukraine has started consideration of the application of the former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin on the revision of the decision of the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine, the correspondent of Front News International reports.

Revision of the ruling of the Supreme Commercial Property Court in case No. 21-873a17 of Viktor Shokin is considered by the Supreme Court judge Oleg Kryvenda.

The interests of ex-prosecutor Shokin are members of the AKTIO advocacy association Vladislav Chervinsky and Vladislav Maksimov.

As reported, on March 29, 2016 the Verkhovna Rada agreed to the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. On April 3, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree dismissing him from his post.

Later, the former prosecutor appealed to the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine to recognize the fact of his dismissal as unconstitutional. He said that in accordance with Article 84 of the Constitution of Ukraine, voting at the sessions of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is carried out by each deputy personally, but it was these constitutional orders that were grossly violated during the voting of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on granting consent to dismiss Shokin from the post of Prosecutor General.

On Thursday, April 20, the Supreme Administrative Court of Ukraine left the suit of former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin about his reinstatement without consideration in fact.
