Head of SAP predicted, when the anti-corruption court

The anti-corruption court of Ukraine will not be able to start working in 2018 because of slow consideration by deputies of the bill on its establishment and long recruitment procedures of judges.

This was stated by the head of anti-corruption prosecutors Nazar Golodnitsky at a joint press conference with the Director of the National anti-corruption Bureau Artem Sitnik.

“Seeing the pace of discussion of the law and knowing the Ukrainian realities, I’m afraid that the anti-corruption court will not be able to earn in 2018,” he said.

According to Golodnitsky, even if the applicable law is adopted, the election of judges of the corruption court will take time.

“Contests in the anti-corruption court will probably be more complicated than competitions in the anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office, where the results of the third stage of the contest of 300 people chose only 4. Imagine what the situation will be with the election of judges. It all the time – the time at which we have. This court is needed. I don’t need it today and yesterday”, – said the head of SAP, urging the Parliament to adopt the law on Anticorruptional court.

In addition, Holodnitsky urged the MPs to support bill No. 7271, which is already considered by the relevant Committee, “to avoid the threat of cuts looming last year over us, to complete the recruitment of the anti-corruption Prosecutor’s office.”

Recall, December 22, 2017, President Petro Poroshenko submitted to the Parliament the draft law on Higher anti-corruption court. The IMF said that the paragraphs of this document conflict with the obligations which Ukraine undertook before the international partners. In response to what Poroshenko said that the draft law on Higher anti-corruption court developed in accordance with the Constitution of Ukraine and in accordance with the recommendations of the Venice Commission. Also at the world Bank believe that the adoption of the law on the anti-corruption court, as proposed Poroshenko, is invalid.
