None of the official was punished for cancelled autumn holidays (document)

The judge of the Transcarpathian District Administrative Court Dmutro Ivanchulynets made a verdict in the case of questionable cancellation of autumn holidays in Uzhgorod. Interestingly, during the announcement, neither representatives of the prosecution office nor those of Uzhgorod City Council were present in the courtroom.

On March 26, the court decided:

- to recognize the actions of officials of Uzhgorod City Council executive committee in adopting the decision of the Executive Committee of Uzhgorod City Council dd. 25.10.2013 № 382 illegal;

- to recognize illegal and quash the decision of the Executive Committee of Uzhgorod City Council dd. 25.10.2013 № 382.

Recall that the decision to cancel the holidays was personally lobbied by the former Mayor of Uzhgorod Victor Pogorelov. In fact, the above mentioned and now canceled decision 382 stole the holidays from students.

But what's the point of abolishing the decision de jure, if de facto children had no holidays in autumn with all the consequences for themselves, their parents and teachers?

Back in January, journalists were informed that in Uzhgorod City Hall they believed that the cancellation of school holidays was legal, so no one should be punished: neither the Head of the Education Department Oksana Babunych nor her subordinates. Only then, Uzhgorod prosecutors decided to sue the municipality.

In the court ruling, it is reasonably explained why the decision of the executive committee is illegal.

But there is no mention about punishment of a particular official for illegal actions.

"Currently, none of the employees of the City Council is held liable for adoption of the unlawful decision to cancel autumn holidays" - the administartor of Uzhgorod city hall Oleksandr Volosyansky told journalists. According to him, the illegality of the decision was challenged in court by the Prosecutor's Office, so they should also prosecute certain officials. So far, the Prosecution office in Uzhgorod has not made any orders to the city council.
