Lutsenko: Prosecutor Kulyk Has an Important Job to Do, but He Won’t Be Covered Up for His Offence

Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko is not going to get Military Prosecutor Kostiantyn Kulyk off the rap, yet admits his important contribution to investigation of Serhiy Kurchenko case.

Indeed, "the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) is investigating the case against Kulyk, and by no means will I cover him up," Lutsenko said on air at 112.Ukraine TV Channel.

"If the court proves that Kulyk has illegally enriched, he will be prosecuted like anyone else. But before the court verdict, I have to state that he plays an important role in investigation of Kurchenko’s alleged offences," Lutsenko added.

Commenting the statement of the NABU Chief Artem Sytnyk that the decision to make an indictment against Kulyk "had been made before he was squeezed in the team of investigators in Kurchenko case," Lutsenko asserted that Kulyk was involved into this investigation as far back as one year ago.

"At that time, the case was ‘frozen’ due to the lack of political will of the GPU management. Now such a political will is available. Kulyk is very important for us, because he has an entire vision of a criminal gang of Kurchenko and Klymenko. Nevertheless, if found guilty, he won’t be covered up," Lutsenko underlined.

The NABU is investigating Kulyk’s case since March, as he did not declare a number of luxury cars and real estate in Kyiv.

Хотелось бы и по поводу расследования коррупционных действий Сытника, на которого ГПУ завела уголовное дело, от Луценко услышать такие же слова, как и по поводу Кулика - "це не означає, що в разі встановлення його порушень закону він буде відмазаний".
