Profile Committee of the Verkhovna Rada for two months is unable to consider amendments to the bill.

Further postponement of the bill on the anti-corruption court jeopardizes further cooperation of Ukraine with the International monetary Fund and creates risks for the stability of the financial system of the country.

On Monday, may 14. said the National office of the international anti-corruption organization Transparency International.

The organization recalled that the presidential law on anti-corruption court has adopted at first reading on 1 March. Over the next two weeks MPs have submitted about 2,000 amendments to the bill. But within two months the relevant Committee of the Verkhovna Rada has not yet started the process of their consideration.

“A cursory analysis shows that about one third of the amendments are such that duplicate one another. Thus, Transparency International Ukraine believes that the Parliament has sufficient time to consider and adopt the law as a whole at the next plenary week”, – said in a statement.

In Transparency International drew attention to the fact that the inaction of the Committee is contrary to the statements of the President of Ukraine and Prime Minister who urged Parliament to pass a law in the near future and drew attention to the dependence of the prospects of the next tranche from the IMF of the impact of this vote.

“Violation of Ukraine’s obligations, which is likely to frustrate the receipt of IMF funds (and thus will make it impossible for macroeconomic assistance from the European Union and lending the world Bank), according to calculations by economic experts, in August of this year, can create the conditions for the crisis phenomena in financial sector of Ukraine”, – emphasized in Transparency International.
