Kyiv's Solomiansky district court has obliged the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) to register criminal proceedings due to the fact of possible abuse of power by Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko.
According to the decision of the Solomiansky district court dated August 5, the text of which is posted in the unified public register of court rulings, investigating judge Maksym Vyshniak examined the complaint of Person_1 about the inactivity of the NABU director (failure to include information on criminal offenses in the unified register of pretrial investigations).
