According to him, "anti-corruption requires a very comprehensive approach, something that can't be done by a single institution."
"One needs strong prosecution, right judges, enforcement of judgments. It's not a simple process. NABU [National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine] was an important accomplishment. We certainly agree that the creation of an anti-corruption court is an important next step. We encourage the government to do that," Lipton said.
Earlier on Friday, September 15, at the opening of the 14th Annual Meeting of Yalta European Strategy (YES), President Petro Poroshenko said that the creation of an anti-corruption court could take one and a half to two years, so it is expedient first to create an anti-corruption chamber, which could begin its work next month.
In July 2017, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said after the EU-Ukraine summit that the EU does not insist on the creation of a specialized anti-corruption court in Ukraine and agrees as an interim option to an anti-corruption chamber as part of the existing judicial system.
