The first systematized judicial database was created in Ukraine. The latter gathered information on and analysis of 7,632 judges. Resulting the investigations, 3 judges were disqualified from the competition to the Supreme Court because of non-compliance with the criteria of goodness and professional ethics. These results were achieved within a year after the launch of the PROSUD project. This was reported by Roman Maselko, project lawyer, member of the Civil Council of Goodness, during a press briefing at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Center.
As part of the project, 300 judges’ houses were filmed, 61 investigations were conducted and 150 reports sent to the authorities. “We often face situations when data in documents is completely different from the reality. These 300 houses illustrate the reality, which we can compare with the documents. And indeed, we often see inconsistencies, which eventually leads to certain legal consequences, in particular to those resulting from the mismatch of the existing amount of real estate property to the declared one”, – emphasized Roman Maselko.
Investigations’ results were submitted to the control authorities. “Resulting our investigations, a number of criminal cases was started by the NABU. […] NZK said that all reports will be further investigated upon the start of the process of complete verification of declarations”, – added Roman Maselko.
Within the next 6 months, data on prosecutors will be gathered in the framework the project. “Our task in this part of the project is to analyze and understand how much the prosecutor’s office has been cleaned up. We will focus our attention on those who were subject to lustration, but eventually did not undergo it […], as well as those employees of the prosecutor’s office, whose declarations were recently made confidential”, – Kateryna Butko, PROSUD project coordinator. She noted that at the moment a beta version of the database has more than 5 thousand profiles of employees of the prosecutor’s office.
