Denisova will contest the decision on her dismissal in court
Lyudmila Denisova stated that she would file an appeal against the decision to dismiss her from the position of the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights.
She said this in her Telegram.
"I was fired contrary to the Constitution, the laws of Ukraine, and international standards. I will contest this decision in court," she wrote.
As IMI reported, on May 31, the Verkhovna Rada dismissed Lyudmila Denisova from the position of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights.
On May 31, over 30 human rights organizations called on the Verkhovna Rada to stop politicizing and trying to destroy the independence of the Ombudsman's institution and to create conditions for an independent competition for this position in compliance with all international standards.
On May 25, 2022, female Ukrainian media workers called on the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmila Denisova to abstain from excessively detailed descriptions of sexual crimes during the war, as well as to verify and carefully consider every word to avoid sensationalism in the reports.
Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova stated that Lyudmila Denisova did not provide her with any information on rape cases which she reported on social media. Instead, the Commissioner was sending emails.
