Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said the attack on High Council of Justice head Ihor Benedisiuk is an attempt to disrupt judicial reform and demands law-enforcement officials to quickly investigate the incident.

“The attack carried out by pseudo-activists wearing baklavas on the head of Ukraine’s High Council of Justice last week is nothing more than an attempt to disrupt judicial reform and preserve the unacceptable status quo which exists in the system that we are trying to reform. The state must and will ensure judges and officials in the judiciary receive adequate protection,” Poroshenko said during a sitting of the council of regional development in Kyiv on March 20.

Poroshenko demanded law-enforcement agencies quickly and objectively investigate the flagrant assault, adding head of Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s Office (PGO) Yuriy Lutsenko has taken the matter under his personal control.
