The panel of judges of the Higher Administrative Court of Ukraine has decided to postpone the consideration of the lawsuit of former Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin for 3:00 p.m. on April 20, because of the absence of the claimant and his representatives at the court session, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent reported.

On March 29, 2016 Ukraine’s parliament voted to sack Shokin. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed an order to dismiss Shokin on April 3, 2016, and Yuriy Lutsenko became PGO head in May 2016.

In March, Shokin filed a lawsuit seeking the recognition of his dismissal as illegal and his reinstatement in the prosecutor general’s office.
