Kasko gives up membership in Transparency International Ukraine

Former Deputy Prosecutor General Vitalii Kasko has decided to resign from the Board of Transparency International Ukraine. 

“Member of the Board of Transparency International Ukraine, partner in the Vasyl Kisil and Partners law firm Vitalii Kasko gave up his membership,” reads a report posted on the organization’s page on Facebook.

Kasko explained his decision by the fact that, as a head of criminal law section of one of major Ukrainian law firms, he is likely to participate in defense of clients, including those suspected of corruption-related offenses. Thus, to avoid conflict of interest, he gave up his membership.

"The standard of rule of law in developed countries provides for quality defense for anyone, including persons suspected of corruption. We are thankful to Vitalii for our long-standing cooperation and support his decision to focus on his legal practice as a defense attorney, the quality of which is one of the basic characteristics of a fair trial," said Chairman of the Board Andrii Marusov, according to the report
