Ukraine president gives back job to ex-prosecutor general

14:05 02/06/2007
KIEV, June 2 (RIA Novosti) - Ukraine's president reinstated Oleksandr Medvedko as Prosecutor General Friday, the government's press service said.

Medvedko, who served as Prosecutor General from 2005 until late April 2007, was nominated by Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, head of the parliamentary coalition which has been embroiled in a protracted standoff with pro-Western President Viktor Yushchenko.

Medvedko appointed the president's previous designate for the post, Viktor Shemchuk, his first deputy.

Following a court ruling, President Yushchenko dismissed Medvedko April 27 and appointed Svyatoslav Piskun as Prosecutor General by decree.

On May 24, Yushchenko recalled the April 27 decree, dismissing Piskun, and issued a new decree appointing former Crimea prosecutor Shemchuk to his post. The Party of Regions-dominated parliament, however, was adjourned, so that Yushchenko failed to have Shemchuk approved by the lawmakers.
