Nazar Kholodnytsky, the Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine, calls on the Parliament to pass the bill which would allow the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine to wiretap officials.
He wrote this on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
"I call on the lawmakers to pass the bill No. 4812, which gives the National Anti-Corruption Bureau the right to get information from communication channels. This bill does not cover all citizens, only the defendants in criminal proceedings within the jurisdiction of National Bureau, i.e. senior officials," Kholodnytsky wrote.
The Head of the Specialized Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office also noted that a provision on wiretapping for the National Anti-Corruption Bureau was stipulated in the new wording of the memorandum between Ukraine and the International Monetary Fund.
