Law of Ukraine “On Cleansing the Government” Adopted

On September 16, 2014, Parliament of Ukraine adopted the Law “On Cleansing the Government”, including the judicial branch. Notwithstanding the fact that mechanisms for restoring trust in the judiciary have already become the subject of regulation by a different law, the Law “On Cleansing the Government” introduced the lustration procedure, covering judges among others. The drafters justified the need for such a step by the fact that the earlier law proved ineffective, while its provisions do not make it possible to prevent a lustrated judge from taking on another government position.
