On 5 September, Olga Chervakova, Member of Parliament and First Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Freedom of Speech and Information Policy, along with other MPs had a meeting with Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko. They discussed Pecherskyi district court of Kyiv order on access to cell phone data of journalist Natalia Sedletska. Sedletska is Chief Editor of the RFE/RL’s programme “Schemes: Corruption inbuttbu Details”.

After the meeting Olga Chervakova announced results, where, among other things, she noted from Lutsenko’s words that a day before the National Anticorruption Bureau of Ukraine seized all servers of the Kyivstar cell phone operator company without a court order.

The same day NABU rebutted the allegation. Kyivstar, for its part, also reported that the information from Yuriy Lutsenko did not correspond to reality.
