International NGO for combating corruption Transparency International and its branch in Ukraine have called on the Ukrainian government to abolish controversial amendments to the Law on Prevention of Corruption that appear designed to intimidate and target anti-corruption activists.

This is said in the statement, posted on the organization's website.

"The e-declaration law was introduced to inhibit corruption and allow for public scrutiny of the wealth of those in power to ensure people did not abuse their official positions to increase their assets beyond their salaries. It has no relevance to anti-corruption activists who are not paid by the state," the statement said.

As reported, Verkhovna Rada Chairman Andriy Parubiy yesterday signed the law obliging representatives of non-governmental organizations to submit e-declarations.
