Transparency International calls on President Poroshenko to submit draft law on anti-corruption court

Transparency International Ukraine calls on Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to submit a draft law on an anti-corruption court as soon as possible.

This has been reported by the press service of the organization.

"Transparency International Ukraine calls on the President of Ukraine to submit the draft law on the creation of the High Anti-Corruption Court for consideration by the Parliament as soon as possible. The chapter of the global anti-corruption network is convinced that there is no need for an additional working group to discuss the main points of the draft law in question," the statement reads.

TI Ukraine is convinced that the President’s draft law should be based on the groundwork developed by the expert group, set forth in draft law 6011 “On Anti-Corruption Courts,” taking into account the recommendations of the Venice Commission presented in its opinion of October 6, 2017, namely: exclusive jurisdiction over cases submitted by the NABU and SAP; creation of an independent appeal chamber; candidates for the positions of judges have to be selected at an open competition with the participation of international partners; anti-corruption judges have to be provided with high remuneration and a sufficient level of security.
