Judge ‘Resigns to Avoid Income Declaration’
The family of judge of Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals Yaroslav Mamchur owns a luxury house and apartment in Kyiv worth ₴35 million ($1.4 million) in total, Automaidan Prosud project informs.
To prevent explanation of where he got money to buy such real estate, Mamchur allegedly announced his resignation during his performance evaluation. Evaluation of 37 more judges was also suspended due to this reason.
The source warns the judges can always retract their resignation intent later. Thus, they can use this loophole to escape the evaluation procedure.
The income declarations of Mamchur for 2014 and 2015 are not open for public, while both the High Qualification Commission of Judges and Kyiv Administrative Court of Appeals ignored journalists’ requests to provide them.
However, Mamchur’s family owns a land plot and a large house in Holosiivskyi district of Kyiv since 2013.

Its current market price is about $1 million.
This is not the only real estate of Mamchur’s family. His wife also owns a spacious apartment and two parking slots in Diplomat Hall residence in Kyiv. Such an apartment and parking slots could cost around $400,000.

It is unclear whether such a luxury real estate would be a concern for the evaluation panel, because Mamchur used his resignation statement to escape evaluation.
