Mykolaiv City Council provides journalist with info on the city officials' salaries following a court ruling

02.05.2023, 15:17

The Mykolaiv City Council provided Oksana Orsach, a reporter with the Center for Journalistic Investigations "Nikcenter", with information about the city officials' salaries following a court ruling.

Journalist Oksana Orsach informed the IMI representative in Mykolaiv oblast about this.

"A week after the court's ruling, the executive committee of the Mykolaiv City Council sent me the information that I had requested. They listed the salaries, bonuses, allowances and financial assistance received by the mayor, his deputies and assistants in the period from January 2022 to January 2023. That is, the executive committee did have access to all the data, even for the months which, as they claimed in court, they could not disclose to journalists. To be honest, I don't really understand why the City Council tried so hard to avoid the question about the salaries. But it's good that they didn't try to delay it further through an appeal," Orsach said.

As reported, on April 11, the Mykolaiv District Administrative Court obliged the Mykolaiv City Council to provide Oksana Orsach, a reporter at the "NikCenter" Investigative Journalism Center, with the information she had previously requested regarding the salaries, bonuses, and other additional payments received by Mayor Oleksandr Sienkovych, his deputies and assistants in 2022.

On January 19, Oksana Orsach contacted to the Mykolaiv City Council, requesting data on the city officials' salaries, but the City Council withheld the information from her, citing the martial law as the reason.
