The HCJ refused to dismiss the Maydan judge Yevhen Ablov
The High Council of Justice refused to dismiss the odious Maydan judge Yevhen Ablov during its meeting on December 10. Although, the Disciplinary Chamber recommended the dismissal of the judge, he was punished only in the form of severe reprimand with deprivation of bonuses during 3 months.
In April 2019, the Disciplinary Chamber of the HCJ made the decision to dismiss Ablov according to the complaint of Automaydan activists. The essence of complaint was that Ablov grossly violated judicial ethics when considering the appeal of the public organization against the National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU).

But the plenary session of the HCJ did not agree with the decision of the Disciplinary Chamber. And instead of dismissing the judge, he was announced the severe reprimand and deprived of bonuses during three months. All 13 members of the High Council of Justice voted for this decision.

It is noteworthy that the HCJ made this decision on December 10, on the anniversary of dispersal activists on the Maydan in 2013, which had been initiated by Ablov himself. The scandalous judge ordered the special forces to disperse activists because they "interfere to walk on Khreshchatyk". Immediately after this decision, Ablov received the service apartment, which he privatized in 2015 and later sold for 9 million (!) UAH.

In 2017, the High Council of Justice considered the complaint against Ablov's actions during the Revolution of Dignity and refused to dismiss him. Ablov's violations were so obvious that members of the HCJ were forced to admit them, but they closed the case due to expiration of terms of bringing the judge to responsibility.

And already in 2019, Ablov, who retained his position thanks to the HCJ, along with other KDAC judges were announced the suspicion in the case of interfering in the work of the High Qualification Commission of Judges and organizing the adoption of knowingly unjust decisions.
