General Prosecutor's office summoned Dmytro Hnap for interrogation because of story on how judges spend their vacations

19.06.2015, 01:15

The General Prosecutor's Office started a case on “dissemination of classified information” against the journalists of the journalist investigation agency “Slidstvo.info”. Dmytro Hnap, the chief of the TV program "Nashi Hroshi," informed about this on his Facebook page.

The "case" that got the prosecutor's office so interested is related to the story which published locations where Ukrainian judges prefer to go on vacation. For example, the head of the administration court of Kyiv city Pavlo Vovk in the last four years visited 18 countries, including tourist trips to Maldives, the OAE, and Italy. Hnap also says that the story was especially interesting as some of the judges were officially working in the court and making judgements while in fact spending time on vacations. The judges, whose vacationing habits were exposed, complained to the prosecutor's office, and, as Hnap believes, "old friends" helped them out by prosecuting journalists to scare them off.
