[JURIST] A district court in Kiev Friday reinstated [Itar-Tass report] Svyatoslav Piskun as Ukraine's prosecutor general after Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko [BBC profile] dismissed him last month. Piskun accused the president of terminating him because he began an investigation into the expenditures of Yushchenko's wife [JURIST report]. Piskun said Friday that he was satisfied with the court's opinion calling it a "matter of principle," but has not yet decided whether he will actually return to the role. Ukraine's Minister of Justice Serhiy Holovaty has vowed to appeal the court's decision calling the ruling "absurd" and saying, "The President's team has lost the first round, but will win the war." Holovaty also criticized the judges deciding the case discouraging "anyone to appeal to these judges, as there is no justice, and no one can count on it."
