In Ukraine there is an acute shortage of judges – Poroshenko

In Ukraine there is an acute shortage of judges. This was stated by the President Petro Poroshenko during his speech in the Verkhovna Rada.

“The load on one judge may be more than thousands of cases a year,” he said.

According to him, all anti-corruption cases are forced to consider only a few judges, and in some courts, judges do not. “This jeopardizes the right of Ukrainians to a fair trial” – said Poroshenko.
