Dozens of protesters come to Ukraine's General Prosecutor's Office in Kyiv (video)

Demonstrators demand punishment for service abuse of General Prosecutor's Office workers

Dozens of demonstrators came to the building of Ukraine's General Prosecutor's Office in Kyiv. Having tied their hands with ropes and with sacks on their heads, people demanded an arrest of Prosecutor's Office workers. With their performance protesters mimicked the methods the General Prosecutor's staff use in their work.

A couple of days ago a video footage titled "This is how the Anti-Corruption Bureau really fights corruption" appeared on the Internet. It caused a real rush in the media. The employees from both institutions were filmed fighting with each other and swearing harshly.

The demonstrators demanded to disband the General Prosecutor's Office state property investigation department. Apart from punishing those guilty in the clashes, the protesters denounced the unaffordable luxury the investigators of General Prosecutor's office live in. In particular, they pointed at expensive Outlander Audi Q7, belonging to prosecutor Dmytro Sus. According to the official documents, the owner of the car is an 85-year-old woman living in the city of Khmelnytskyi in western Ukraine, supposedly his grandmother.
