For Dignity and Human Rights in Ukraine

Details

Public statement of the legal aid system team on violation of basic principles during the competition for the position of the Director of the Coordination Centre for Legal Aid Provision

bpd ne movchy

Respect for dignity, transparency and accountability and nonpartisanship are the values that the legal aid system has been fighting for over last five years. We have won public trust and the right to exist during the Revolution of Dignity when we were practically the only public institution protecting the rights of civil activists.

We believe that the way the competition for the selection of the new Director of the Coordination Centre for Legal Aid Provision was held undermines basic principles underlying our work, ruins trust in the system and ultimately deprives hundreds of thousands of people, our customers, of the right to justice. This is an outrage upon dignity and human rights.

The legal aid system in Ukraine is an institution that serves citizens of Ukraine. It is financed by taxpayers and is accountable primarily to society. We do not have the right to allow for even the slightest doubt in our values and cannot let ruin something that took arduous work and a lot of efforts to build trust for. We consider this fight our personal Revolution of Dignity for millions of citizens we serve.

We appeal to the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine with a proposal concerning:

-       cancellation of the results of the competition;

-       change of the procedure of appointment of the Director of the Coordination Centre for Legal Aid Provision to the transfer appropriate powers to the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine;

-       a new objective and transparent competition with the balanced participation of human rights organizations and international partners, in particular, using an already existing practice of public competitions in the legal aid system;

-       professional public discussions to enhance the independence of the legal aid system and minimize political influence on it, which should be followed by decision making by the Government of Ukraine.

We turn to the public with a call to protect and preserve the system of legal aid in Ukraine.

For the day (04 June 2017) 222 team members of the Centre, 64 Centres for Free Secondary Legal Aid Provision, and 52 non-governmental and human rights organisations supported the free legal aid system in Ukraine.
