The EUAM said this in a statement regarding the selection process for the new managerial positions in the SBI.
"The allegations pertain to serious violations of human rights reportedly committed by some of the candidates, as well as concerns over possible corruption offences and their integrity risks. We believe that personnel selected for SBI should be individuals of the highest professional and moral standing. This is key to building the public trust of the SBI: as any new law enforcement agency, it has still to earn confidence of the citizens of Ukraine," reads the statement.
At the same time, the mission noted that EUAM is currently observing the selection of the SBI personnel limited to the selection administered by the two internal Selection Commissions of SBI.
"Our involvement does not cover the selection administered by the external Commission, according to an agreement with the SBI regarding the selection observation," EUAM said.
