Competition for the General Inspector of the Prosecutor’s Office draws to a closeNovember 15, 2016
The competition to become the head of a newly created General Inspectorate of the Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) is drawing to a close. The winner will be charged with investigating criminality within the Prosecutor General’s Office.
Few will have followed the process – although it has been a process that could have been followed.
Of the initial twelve candidates, there remain two.
Professor Vladimir Uvarov of the Dnipro State University of Internal Affairs, and the current head of the Zolochiv PGO in Lviv, Vladimir Kupetsky.
It now falls to Prosecutor General Lutsenko to choose his man.
It then falls upon Prosecutor General Lutsenko to get out of the way and let the successful candidate do their job without undue interference and/or obstructionism.
For Yuri Lutsenko, the former will be far easier than the latter.
Nevertheless a step in the right direction will have been taken once the General Inspectorate of the PGO gets to work. Whether it is allowed to take another step forward thereafter is the real issue.
