Transparency explains why it is important to bring Yanukovych to justice

Chairman of Transparency International José Ugaz is convinced that if Ukraine does not bring former president Yanukovych to justice, then the corruption will win and remove all the positive achievements made by Ukrainians in recent years.

He said this in a video appeal before the 3rd International Conference on Asset Recovery in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We need to bring Yanukovych to justice, because otherwise the corruption will win by erasing public memory of terrible offense," Ugaz said.

He is convinced that an effective investigation into the crimes of the former Ukrainian president and his crime associates is an effective symbol of reforms in Ukraine. In addition, the head of Transparency International urges the Ukrainian authorities to establish independent anti-corruption courts as soon as possible.
