The Power of Law Came Out on Top
The panel of Kiev Court of Appeal considered the appeal of an internally displaced person from Donbass from Goloseevo Court ruling to strike the case following the claim to recognize the legal fact that the applicant was forced to relocate as a result of military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.
The court of appeal reversed the decision of the first-instance court and remanded the case for retrial.
The reasoning used by the judge of the first instance court to strike the case was often used by judges who either were not qualified enough or sought to avoid trail.
In similar cases, judges referred to the issue on law and inability to grant a claim to recognize legal facts.
Kiev Court of Appeal put the lid on the matter and sealed another creephole for defectors from the legal battlefield.
