DOES THIS APPLY TO THE PRESIDENT’S DECREES ALSO?
The government’s decree, allowing not to fulfill illegal court rulings, may cause anarchy in the state, Party of Regions lawmaker Mykola Azarov believes.
“The current authorities keep on creating terrible precedents for the state. The regular decision of the Cabinet of Ministers, allowing state power bodies not to fulfill court rulings, may cause legal impunity in the state. In my opinion, the Prosecutors’ Office, the Supreme Court, and the President, must give an assessment to this decision of the government”, M.Azarov claimed.
He is convinced that nobody has a right to neglect court rulings. “Court rulings are obligatory to fulfill. It concerns not only citizens, but also different organizations, first of all, state agencies, which must serve as an example of law-abiding”, he stressed.
M.Azarov emphasized that if anybody does not agree with a ruling, he may appeal against it. “But, not to fulfill court rulings is nonsense. If we strive to build a legal state, we have no right to neglect court rulings, as it is a way towards anarchy”, he said.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on January 23, the government adopted a resolution, allowing not to fulfill evidently illegal court rulings.
In his turn, Justice Minister Mykola Onyshchuk stressed that the decree clearly sets out that in such cases, state bodies should immediately appeal against these rulings in court.
