66 hectares of land were returned to the state, after they had been taken away from a farm in Uzhgorod district
Uzhgorod Interdistrict Prosecutor's Office, according to the results of the inspection, found out that by the order of the Head of Uzhgorod DSA, the forest land in the tract "Tsehlivskyy forest" had been transferred for temporary use to a municipal enterprise, which in turn transferred it to a farm.
Uzhgorod Interdistrict Prosecutor's Office challanged this order in the Commercial Court of Transcarpathian region. However, the court denied prosecutors in the said suit.
As Uzhgorod interdistrict prosecutor Ivan Tsar noted, disagreeing with this decision, prosecutors filed an appeal to the Lviv Economic Court of Appeal. At the trial, the prosecution proved that the court of original jurisdiction, when considering the case, incompletely elucidated the circumstances relevant to the case, and has not taken into account the fact that the above mentioned agreement and orders of the head of Uzhgorod DSA had been made in violation of the requirements of Articles of Land Forest, and the Civil Code of Ukraine.
Given the above mentioned, the panel of judges of Lviv Economic Court of Appeal decided to cancel the decision of the Commercial Court of Transcarpathia and fulfill the appeal of Uzhgorod interdistrict prosecutor.
Therefore, the land from the reserve of Tyyhlash village council in Uzhgorod district in the tract "Tsehlivskyy forest", with a total area of almost 66 hectares, was returned to the state ownership.
