Judge Chaus ignores questioning at prosecutor's office

Mykola Chaus did not arrive to receive a notification on suspicion of committing a crime

Judge Chaus should appear at the prosecutor's office at 12:00. Yet he did not come. On Wednesday Chaus suddenly went on vacation - after he was caught red-handed while accepting a bribe. 

Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor Office cannot remand him into custody because Mykola Chaus enjoys judicial immunity. He can only be stripped of it by the parliament. Yet Verkhovna Rada is on vacation too.
