Ukraine high court dismisses Jewish case


Ukraine’s Supreme Court dismissed a case against a Jewish organization.


The Interregional Academy of Personnel Management, or MAUP, Ukraine’s largest private university based in Kiev, lost in its bid to sue the Jewish Confederation of Ukraine and its publication The Jewish Observer over articles written two years ago about MAUP activities directed against the Jewish community and Zionism.

A lower court had rejected the original lawsuit, and the Appeals Court of Ukraine found in favor of MAUP.


The MAUP, whose leaders have a long history of anti-Semitism, has published anti-Semitic articles in school and national publications, as well as hosted and supported anti-Semitic conferences.
