The reason is reported to be a break of a judicial oath

Ukraine's President, Petro Poroshenko, signed the decrees dismissing two judges of Kyiv Shevchenkivskyi District Court and one judge of Kyiv Holosiyivskyi District Court.

Svitlana Haiduk, Nataliya Hrynkovska and Maksym Frolov are dismissed because of violating their judicial oaths during the revolution of Dignity, according to the Presidential website.

The statement reads that judges Svitlana Haiduk and Nataliya Hrynkovska, while making the decisions on detained Maidan activists, didn't take any measures to provide a complete, fair and comprehensive hearing of each case. It is a direct break of the judicial oath and a demonstration of their biased position towards detainees.

Moreover, the judges failed to observe the provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code of Ukraine, the European Convention on Human Rights and the practice of the European Court of Human Rights, when deciding on the pre-trial restrictions for detainees.
