Kyiv District Administrative Court has launched proceedings on the lawsuit filed by Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko against Head of the Presidential Office and Kolomoisky’s former lawyer Andriy Bohdan. The reason for the lawsuit is the Office’s decision to dismiss him as chairman of Kyiv City State Administration, according to Censor.NET referring to the press office of the court.
The lawsuit is to be considered under the rules of summary judgment without notice (summons).
“The plaintiff stated in his demand that Andiy Bohdan, Head of the Presidential Office, had exceeded power when he filed a letter to the Cabinet of Ministers, which served as the basis for the government’s consideration of a motion to dismiss Vitali Klitschko as chairman of Kyiv City State Administration,” the communication reads.
On September 30, Klitschko sued the Cabinet of Ministers, Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk and Head of the Presidential Office Andriy Bohdan over the decision to dismiss him as chairman of Kyiv City State Administration.
On October 8, Kyiv District Administrative Court launched the proceedings and appointed a preparatory meeting for October 31.
The dispute is centered around the interpretation of the Law of Ukraine “On the Capital”, according to which the same person may or may not simultaneously serve as the elected mayor of Kyiv and as appointed chairman of Kyiv City State Administration.
